Hello! I'm in the second semester of a post-bacc program at Nevada State college and plan to send out grad applications this coming fall. Since my previous two degrees are in music, I would like/need to get some volunteer experience. Question is, how do I go about doing this? I sent a few emails to SLP clinics around town, but was informed they weren't taking volunteers, or didn't respond. As I want to work with adults in the field, should I contact hospitals or nursing homes? Any input would be appreciated.
Also, where the heck are the men in this field? I'm the only guy in the post-bacc program. Will I be shunned at grad school? Forced into isolation as the girls run off to braid hair, or whatever girls do with free time?
