Impact Volunteers

Davenport University Occupational Therapy Program

Five Davenport students spent their fall immersed in a variety of ACT programs for students of all ages and abilities. Davenport’s Occupational Therapy (OT) students bring a specific skillset using what they learn in the classroom to their experiences here at ACT. These volunteers bring genuine joy and energy to every class and form meaningful connections with our students.

Each year, professor Barbra Katerberg matches a group of her students to ACT so they can gain experiences for their education and support our mission. Katerberg spoke of why this experience is so important for her students:

“They have an invaluable opportunity to practice and develop lifelong skills needed to be effective occupational therapists. It is a transformational process and ACT provides the laboratory to learn while engaging with people with disabilities.”

Thank you Jamie, Allie, Carissa, Katelyn, and Jacqueline for all of your support this fall!
