Volunteers are the heart, soul, and backbone of our organization; they are the key to success with the participants that we serve.  Over 150 volunteers generously contribute their time to TASP in many forms, whether that be sharing their passion for snow sports, engaging in summer adventures with participants, facilitating special events and fundraisers, or lending a hand in the office.  We are extremely grateful for our dedicated volunteer base; without it, our program would not exist.

SO, HOW DO YOU GET INVOLVED?

We are always accepting new volunteers!

If you are interested in learning more about upcoming volunteer opportunities (summer or winter!), please call the office at 970.728.2443 or email m.miller@tellurideadaptivesports.org. Thank you all and we hope to see you soon!

Winter Volunteers

We are excited for your interest in joining the TASP community through volunteering!  Please see the note below for the 2020-2021 winter season: 

We encourage ALL interested VOLUNTEERS to read TASP’s Covid-19 Agreement before committing to volunteering this season.

 ** Our NEW VOLUNTEER program will look a little different this winter because of the necessary precautions for the Covid-19 pandemic.  This was a very difficult decision but unfortunately we are only accepting new on-snow volunteers on a case-by-case basis for those with prior experience directly related to adaptive recreation, ski or snowboard instruction, and/or special education. This is due to the nature of the necessary training and limited resources this winter.  Hopefully next winter, we will be able to welcome all volunteers who are inspired to help those with disabilities enjoy the slopes.**  

If you are a new volunteer and feel you have directly related experience, please email M’Lin at m.miller@tellurideadaptivesports.org explaining why you are interested in volunteering along with pertinent experience.  

If you are a new volunteer and do not feel you have the necessary experience for this season, please still contact M’Lin if you are interested in joining the 2021-2022 New Winter Volunteers List to receive updates on TASP volunteer opportunities and finding other ways to get involved to support the mission.  

For returning volunteers, TASP’s Volunteer Application is not live. Training Registration will go live by the end of November.  Training information for returning volunteers and continuing education will be found on the Training Registration website once it is updated for the season.  This year it will be a hybrid training with emphasis on remote learning.  Please don’t hesitate to contact Program Staff should you have any questions.

For more information, help signing up for a training, or to become a volunteer instructor, please call 970.728.2443 or email m.miller@tellurideadaptivesports.org.

Summer Volunteers

If you are interested in volunteering during the summer, please call 970.728.2443 or email m.miller@tellurideadaptivesports.org for more information.

Typically, we will offer a number of sport specific trainings at the end of May and the first part of June on how to best assist our clients in activities such as flatwater canoeing/kayaking, rock climbing, and biking as well as first aid and CPR certification classes. Trainings will be posted in calendar form at the bottom of the Current Instructor page. Other opportunities that will be available include hiking, horseback riding, fishing, jeeping, rafting, inclusion lessons, overnight campouts, and more! We encourage all of our instructors to be First Aid and CPR certified and require this certification of all summer Lead Instructors.

For more information, please contact M’Lin at m.miller@tellurideadaptivesports.org or 970-728-2443. Thank you!
