2019 TNOTA Philanthropy & Volunteer Opportunities

Gigi's Playhouse is a nonprofit achievement center that provides free therapeutic-based, educational, career development, and family connections programming and events to individuals with Down syndrome from diagnosis through adulthood, their families, and the community. Since Gigi's Playhouse is 98% volunteer-run and 100% donor-funded, they depend on volunteers and donors to fulfill their mission of changing the way the world sees Down Syndrome.

Tennessee State University has launched a student-ru pro-bono community rehab clinic! The clinic launched August 26, 2019 and is still seeking occupational and physical therapy practitioners to serve as supervising therapists and act as mentors for student volunteers. 

Benefits of serving as a Supervising Therapist include: 

  • Attending an AOTA Fieldwork Educators credentialing course
  • Complimentary attendance to any TSU OT/PT-sponsored continuing education courses
  • Mentorship opportunities with TSU OT/PT faculty and students
  • Continuing education credit for Clinical Instructor responsibilities
  • One contact hour CEU for every 16 hours served (maximum of 10 contact hours in one calendar year. Clinic contact hours are separate from CEU’s earned from TSU-sponsored opportunities)
