VOLUNTEER WITH OTAC!
Volunteers are the life and heartbeat of OTAC! Volunteers lead all of OTAC’s Board positions and committees and help the organization to continue to thrive and grow. The role of a volunteer as a committee or board member is to collaborate with other OT professionals and students to design, plan, and implement activities that support meeting the mission, values, and purpose of OTAC.
Committees offer an interactive opportunity to collaborate with other OT professions and students, and delivering outcomes that run the Association. Committees generally meet via teleconference. Check out the calendar to see when committees are meeting.
Volunteers who are OTAC members are eligible to earn contact hours for time served as a committee or board member.
How to get involved:
- Review the descriptions of board committees and board positions. Choose a committee(s) or board position where you believe your skill sets can assist OTAC's mission or where you would like to expand on your skills.
- You can join a committee at any time.
- Fill out the Volunteer Interest form or Board Position Application form.Ar

DAWN is an interdisciplinary student-run free clinic that serves uninsured patients from the Aurora community. DAWN is a cutting edge service delivery model with students from different medical professions get to collaborate to provide the best possible all inclusive client centered care. The clinic provides a brilliant opportunity for students to collaborate with and learn from each other while serving the community surrounding the Anschutz Medical Campus. Currently, the DAWN clinic includes medical, pharmacy, physical therapy, and social work students. The goal is to also include OT students by working with CSU and Creighton-Regis Universities (and any others that might be interested!)
The role of the OT practitioner volunteers would be to be available for students to review their assessment findings and recommendations for patients, while students will primarily deliver all face to face care. Students also gain experience connecting patients with resources within the community. DAWN occurs once a week on Tuesday evenings from 5-10pm (after work). We are needing practitioner volunteers in order to support the students.
