NSSLHA reaches out to the community through volunteer work and community service.? Recent events have included educational visits to the MGH Voice Center, participating in the Walk for Breast Cancer, and fund-raising for St. Francis House, a local homeless shelter. NSSLHA is a great way to meet other students within the major and discuss classroom work, projects and the field. Meetings are informal and emphasize getting to know each other and having fun!
Every year there are opportunities to volunteer in the Robbins Speech, Language and Hearing Center on campus. This is a great way for students to see how graduate students and speech-language pathologists work with a range of clients. This is also an excellent way to gain experience working with populations you might see as a speech-language pathologist, build your resume for graduate school or future jobs, and apply the knowledge you have gained from your academic coursework.
ASL Emerson is a sign language interest group on campus. This group meets to practice American Sign Language, discuss topics that pertain to sign language, and plan activities with the Deaf community.
Best Buddies pairs people with intellectual disabilities with college students to form one-to-one friendships. You will have the opportunity to be a social mentor while helping to improve the quality of life and level of inclusion for a population that is often isolated and excluded. Volunteers offer a Buddy the chance to form meaningful connections, gain self-confidence and self-esteem, and share interests, experiences, and activities.
Students have the opportunity to work one-to-one with underserved preschool children in the local area through Jumpstart, an AmeriCorps program.? Jumpstart Corps members work for the full school year to help preschoolers develop the language, social, and literacy skills necessary for school success.
Through Citizen Schools, students teach middle school students a 10-week after-school curriculum on a topic of the college students’ choice. Our students have taught courses in creative writing, theatre, events planning, video, journalism, etc.?
Science Club for Girls?helps bring science education to girls from underrepresented groups.? There are opportunities to get involved as a mentor to help teach fun-filled and hands-on courses.? The curriculum is already set and you will receive training on how to teach, as well as supervision and assistance from experienced teachers.
This senior-level course enables students to be directly in the field alongside SLPs or Audiologists or other professionals. When students express an interest in a particular population, our faculty work with them to find a suitable placement that will be a mutual fit. This is a great opportunity to make your first connections within the field and fine tune your developing skills.
There are many other opportunities to get involved with organizations and leadership on campus.? Student Engagement and Leadership represents many organizations and is always looking for students to head-up or be a member of a committee.? It’s a tremendous way to broaden your skills and get involved with the greater Emerson community.
Employment opportunities may be available in the CSD department; they include working at the front desk or with individual faculty in their research programs.
