Frequently Asked Questions

What do you mean by service?

From volunteering at a homeless shelter to an afternoon’s companionship to a person with cancer, if you think it might be service, it probably is! Visit the How I Can Help? section for more specific examples of service.


What if I’m busy on October 27th?

While October 27 is the official Occupational Therapy Global Day of Service, we understand that not all who serve will have free time on the same day. Just volunteer within a few weeks of that date and be sure to share your OTGDS experience with us!

How long does my service need to last to count toward the Occupational Therapy Global Day of Service?

It would be ideal to volunteer for a minimum of 1-2 hours.
