Volunteer with Oregon Adaptive Sports
Winter is on it’s way! Check back soon for a more detailed plan, but for now you can see the basics on our winter operations page. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, OAS will only be utilizing returning volunteers for the 2020-21 season. Volunteers, please check your email for more information on training and scheduling.
Volunteers are the heart and core of Oregon Adaptive Sports. We welcome enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers age 18 and up to join our team. All volunteers are subject to a background screening. There is no minimum time commitment to volunteer asides from initial training.
Volunteer Program Assistant
Volunteer assistants work closely with an OAS instructor to handle equipment, aid the participant and join in on the activity. Assistants will follow the lead of an instructor to best support the student. Occasionally, assistants work independently as a “buddy” to more experienced participants in the designated activity.
Instructors are trained individuals, assigned to assume responsibility for a student, working closely with them to provide guidance towards their skill development with the support of volunteers. The Instructor’s role is to teach a lesson while facilitating independence. These are volunteers with significant experience and training.
Being on the mountain or the water not your thing? We still need you! Off hill volunteers are crucial to the success of OAS and involve everything from being an ambassador for OAS at fun events, to helping out with office tasks and lots of little things in between.
