TYPES OF VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
Sports & Recreation Volunteers
Experience sports and outdoor recreation in an unforgettable way. Our army of 400+ volunteers hold the key to unleashing the Boundless Courage within for thousands of children, adults, and veterans with physical and cognitive challenges.
From strokes, accidents, war injuries, Parkinson’s, MS and more, we help people become happy and healthy again by focusing on their abilities.
Our sports program volunteers help participants gain independence within a particular sport or recreational activity.
Opportunities include: snow skiing, water skiing, kayaking, cycling, climbing, paddle boarding, snowboarding, sailing, fishing, and more. We provide significant training and certification opportunities.
Did you know that corporate volunteer programs can help develop employee skills, improve leadership skills, create teamwork opportunities and create more job satisfaction? According to a study by the University of Texas and the Points of Light Foundation, 58% of companies use employee volunteer programs for recruiting and keeping employees, and 97% of employee-volunteer managers felt corporate volunteerism improved teamwork within teams.
Adaptive Sports Connection has opportunities throughout the year for Corporate Volunteers to make a huge impact. So, whether you bring your team or department to assist in a spring fix up day or site winterize day or to provide volunteer buddies for a cycling, skiing, water skiing, sailing, rock climbing, or kayaking event, your team will walk away knowing they made a difference.
High school groups, church groups, sororities, fraternities, civic groups, meet-up groups, and any other group - volunteering together in our adaptive adventure sports activities is just plain fun. Not only will you make an impact on people with disabilities, working together with your group will increase your happiness. And, did we mention it's fun!
Circle of Friends & Family Volunteers for Private Outings
New to the Adaptive Sports Connection this year is our circle of friends and family volunteer teams. If you have a friend or family member that has a disability of any kind and you would like to support them during a private outing for kayaking or cycling, we will train you and help schedule your adventure outing.
Our organization is volunteer-driven. Outside of hands-on sports and recreational activities, opportunities include: marketing and fundraising committees, gala auction, winter sports challenge, event planning, property maintenance engineering, bike assembly, coaching, and more.
Social Enterprise Volunteers
We also have volunteer opportunities to help with our corporate and group adventure outings that help support the organization through our social enterprise.
