Vermont Adaptive seeks energetic, dedicated individuals who have a passion for sports, working with athletes with disabilities, and non-profit management and who want to learn while sharing their passions with others.
Vermont Adaptive’s Apprenticeship Program is for students ages 14-17 looking to volunteer some their time in exchange for training, experience, opportunities to ski, ride, mountain bike, and paddle, and potentially school credit and application or resume building.
Internships are for people age 18+ and are specifically designed to fit college and professional program requirements while being flexible around class and work schedules. We work directly with programs at local colleges and universities and are happy to design an internship to meet your academic goals. Many of our internship positions are paid.
Apprentices and Interns help instruct and manage day to day programs, year-round for individuals of all ages and disabilities. We can also design special projects or internship activities around your areas of interest.
