Students who are interested in gaining experience in the optometry field can apply as volunteers at SHS. We require a minimum of four hours per week.

We are also able to customize your volunteer experience within the areas that most interest you. If you have an interest in the volunteer program, please stop by the Vision Clinic to fill out a volunteer application. We recruit new volunteers each academic quarter.
