Great experience working with children with a variety of musculoskeltal and developmental disorders
Pros: experience with special orthopaedic rehabilition, as well as complex continuing care
Volunteering at Holland-Bloorview opened my eyes to the children most in need of the attention that dedicated volunteers can give. Since many of the patients were under the age of 12, being an active part of of their social maturation, and cognitive development was rewarding in a way that is indescribable. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, and the senior staff know their job, and provide all the training for newcomers.
