Clinical volunteer opportunity @ NYSPI

| September 17, 2014

**MUST CONTACT MATT GOLD IF NOT REGISTERED WITH VOLUNTEER SERVICES AT NEW YORK STATE PSYCHIATRIC INSTITUE (NYSPI)

TO ALL NYSPI VOLUNTEERS:

I have a unique clinical opportunity to offer.  A 24 year old man on one of the Institute’s in-patient units needs some tutoring as he would like to eventually take the GED; the highest grade he has completed is the 8th grade. He has been accessing educational websites while on the unit, refreshing his memory on algebra, science, and reading; however, he believes seeing a tutor would help him make some strides. He is really motivated to make some changes in his life after discharge.  This opportunity would be in addition to your current NYSPI volunteer role.

If you are interested, contact the unit’s Social Worker, Margaret Caffery, atcaffery@nyspi.columbia.edu.
