Sessions: Part of the overall training
NYIM is committed to serving the community by raising awareness of the benefits of massage. As part of the overall training, the student will be required to complete 20 hours (subject to change) of community service. Fulltime students need to have community service requirements fulfilled in 2nd and 3rd terms (10 hours per term). Parttime students must complete community service in their 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th terms (5 hours per term). Community service is completed at NYIM sponsored functions and most events benefit local charities. This requirement helps the student to gain valuable knowledge about the massage therapy profession through hands-on contact with the public.
