Volunteer with Us
Volunteers must be vaccinated, if eligible, or have an approved exemption to participate in NSCD programs.
By November 1, 2021, or prior to being on-site at the NSCD, the NSCD will expect all volunteers that have direct contact with participants to either (a) establish that they have been fully vaccinated; or (b) obtain an exemption approved by NSCD and provide regular negative COVID test results. To request an exemption please contact Human Resources in writing at [email protected]. For the purposes of this policy, an individual is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the second dose of a two-dose vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) or one dose of a single-dose vaccine (Janssen) and remain current with any future required doses or boosters.
Individuals who do not fulfil one of these two requirements will not be able to volunteer at the NSCD in a position that has direct participant contact.
To establish that they are fully vaccinated, volunteers will sign a vaccination attestation during registration (or during check-off process) and must present one of the following for inspection by the Volunteer Services Manager or Coordinator during the Volunteer training check-off process:
- CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card or photo of the card
- Documentation of vaccination from a health care provider or electronic health record
- State immunization information system record
The NSCD will treat all such information as confidential.

WHERE ELSE CAN YOU PLAY HARD, SHARE YOUR PASSION FOR YOUR SPORT AND CHANGE A LIFE?
At the National Sports Center for the Disabled, we believe every person has unique, incredible, life-changing abilities. For more than 50 years, our volunteers and our athletes have shared the love of the great outdoors, the power of play and the thrill of trying something new. From the screams of joy going over white-water rapids to the sounds of laughter echoing from the ski lifts, our volunteers say that every moment they spend with our participants changes their views about what’s possible and makes their lives richer.
The driving force behind our world-renowned adaptive experiences is our team of more than 1,400 hands-on volunteers who dedicate over 40,000 hours annually to helping participants ski, snowboard, kayak, rock climb, learn new sport skills and more. Along the way, our volunteers are helping athletes redefine what their future can look like, rediscover a zest for life, connect with others and improve their social, mental and physical well-being.
As a volunteer, you’ll not only enhance the lives of our participants through sport, you’ll help our athletes, their families and the community #RethinkAbility.
When you join our NSCD community as a volunteer, you are joining change-makers, belief-shifters, barrier-breakers and can-doers, all trying to be their best selves and help others live their best lives. Together with our athletes, you’ll share the joy, fun, adventure and beauty of Colorado’s great outdoors and all that it has to offer.
Our volunteers receive extensive training in whatever area they choose to volunteer, so you’ll be well prepared, confident and excited to share your passion for life with the new friends you make here.
