208 Valley RoadNew Canaan, CT 06840


We are seeking mature college students, recent college graduates or graduate students who are interested in the mental health field and who would like to volunteer to support our teen patients (ages 13-17) during their school time period on weekday mornings (Monday-Friday 9:15-11:15 a.m.). Volunteers choose the days they are available and work with the teacher to support teen patients while they complete homework assignments or engage in other structured activities (puzzles, arts/crafts, board games). Volunteers provide supportive, positive dialogues that motivate and support our youngest patients who are in treatment for a psychiatric or addictive disorder.

After being selected for this position, volunteers must complete a one-day hospital orientation that takes place on the first Monday of the month (except on holiday Mondays). Candidates must also provide one written reference and provide documentation of a negative PPD (TB screening).

We look forward to hearing from you. Please contact Lisa Ruggiero at or 203-801-2320.
