Student Volunteer Opportunities
We encourage current students and graduates to do volunteer reflexology in the community of their choice. Volunteering brings benefits of health to the minds and bodies of those receiving the work and assistance to the community at large, and it helps you learn about different issues related to health, feet, and tissue textures in reflex areas. It might even lead to a specialty you can offer later in your professional life!
Please contact SRMC if you have additional volunteer suggestions. Be sure to provide us with contact information, volunteer description and any requirements or education offers that might be involved with the volunteer facility.

Care for Victims of Human Trafficking
The Organization for Prostitution Survivors (OPS) is a grassroots non-profit that was started by survivors and their allies to stop the violence of prostitution. OPS works in three program areas: survivor services, community education, and men’s accountability. OPS accompanies survivors of prostitution in creating and sustaining efforts to heal from and end this practice of gender-based violence. By leading the community in healing the harm of prostitution, OPS will shift the social norms that support the practice of prostitution. OPS is both a social service agency and an agent of social change.
For more information about volunteering, visit http://www.seattleops.com/. To learn more about how you can help, attend an OPS community forum meeting, such as this one: http://www.seattleops.com/community-engagement-forum-may-1st-the-greenwood-library/.
