Do You Need Observation Hours?
We understand to meet certain criteria for a class, students may be required to complete observation hours. We are happy and willing to share our work at Turnstone with you so you can gain a better understanding of the value of working with individuals with disabilities.
Observation is available within any program area of Turnstone with appropriate planning. Observation times may be scheduled through the volunteer coordinator at least two weeks in advance. Individuals can observe a maximum of 6 hours and if more time is needed the volunteer application process including background check must be completed.
