Become a Saint Therese Volunteer

Let's get started.

Individual volunteers

Volunteers from all walks of life enhance the lives of our residents every single day.  Whether a student with volunteer hours to fill or an adult who enjoys spending time with seniors, we have many opportunities to fit varying interests and availability.

Volunteers must be 15 years of age or older and able to commit to a regular schedule of volunteering (weekly, bi-weekly or monthly).  Due to the time investment and cost of background checks, we ask our volunteers to commit a minimum of 30 hours per year.  Group volunteering opportunities are available for those younger than 15 years old. Submit an online application for your preferred location (see below) and you will be contacted by volunteer services.  All volunteers are required to complete an interview, application, orientation and a criminal background check with fingerprinting (state required).

Volunteer groups

Volunteer groups, like work groups or youth groups, make a tremendous contribution to Saint Therese residents in fun and meaningful ways such as providing musical entertainment, hosting parties or special events, helping during happy hours or assisting with activities and games.  For one-time group volunteer opportunities, please complete and submit the “Group Volunteer” application below.  You will be contacted by volunteer services. Due to the planning involved in implementing group activities with residents, we ask groups interested in volunteering with Saint Therese submit an application a minimum of two weeks prior to the desired service date.

Therapy Shadowing Opportunities

Saint Therese welcomes therapy students seeking opportunities to shadow physical, occupational or speech therapists as part of their school program requirements.  Please complete and submit the "Ascend Rehab" application below.


For those seeking internship opportunities, please submit a volunteer application for your preferred location.  Note an internship interest on your application. You will be contacted by volunteer services to discuss opportunities and next steps.
