Volunteering

The National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic depends on a corps of more than 700 volunteers.

Based on the needs of the event and its Veterans, volunteers with specific skills and abilities are prized contributors. 

Those include:

  • Certified adaptive ski instructors

  • CDL drivers with class “B” passenger endorsement

  • Clinical staff in the areas of recreation, occupational and physical therapists and adaptive sports specialists

 

 

Volunteers are recruited from June 1 to September 1 each year.

We are no longer recruiting volunteers for the 2020 National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic.

Many volunteer opportunities are physically demanding at high altitude, require lifting and some require moderate computer skills. Each area has job-specific requirements. If you volunteer, please ensure you can meet the requirements.

 

Volunteer opportunities are recruited for in the following areas:

  • Alternative Activities

  • Bootloader

  • Downhill Adaptive Instructors (we are in need of strong instructors who can tether)

  • Food & Beverage

  • Nordic Adaptive Instructors

  • Ski Equipment Team

  • Team Leader

  • Transportation

If you are interested in volunteering please contact Teresa Parks at Teresa.parks@va.gov.
