Volunteering in the DDSIG


We LOVE our volunteers!

While it is true that the DDSIG is run by a group of elected volunteers, we could not do what we do without the help of a much larger group of passionate volunteers. Our volunteers contribute to every aspect of what we do and we are thankful for their help. In this section, you will find out who are volunteers are, what they do, and how you can become more involved.

How To Get more involved

The DDSIG is always looking for passionate volunteers. Some projects require time commitments over a longer period of time while others may require 4-5 hours completed when it is convenient for you. All volunteers need to be members of the ANPT and the DDSIG. While some work needs to be completed by experienced physical therapists, there are some projects that students can help with. If you are interested in volunteering, reach out here.
