STRAPS mission is to organize, promote, administer, and conduct a variety of adaptive and Paralympic-style sports for wounded service members and veterans as well as other adults and youth. STRAPS athletes strive to become role models and mentors to others with disabilities as they promote character development through sports.
STRAPS is currently seeking individuals who are enthusiastic about the adaptive sports world and want to help provide adaptive sport opportunities to individuals with physical disabilities or visual impairments. Interns will assist with weekly sport programs, coordinate volunteers, update weekly schedule changes, complete wheelchair maintenance, and help with event planning. Interns will also work closely with their supervisor to ensure that athletes are receiving the best possible individualized outcomes.
