In our recent blog post, we talked about the benefits of adaptive sports. For participants, adaptive sports programs bring many great opportunities. But did you know there are plenty of great reasons to volunteer for adaptive sports jobs?
That’s right - while our programs such as surfing, basketball, and cycling bring joy and fun activities for participants, they also provide many benefits to those who volunteer at our events. Here are some reasons to volunteer with Coastal Adaptive Sports:
You’re Making a Difference in Peoples’ Lives
When you volunteer your time and energy at one of our events, you’re helping a large amount of people. Without our volunteers, our events would be next to impossible. Volunteers make it possible for us to host large groups at our surfing, biking, and other events. Our volunteers are key in helping people feel comfortable and safe while having fun.
Improve Your Mental Health
Volunteering for a good cause will more than likely improve your mental health. Helping others makes us feel good, and will make you feel good, too! When you’re at our events, you’ll get to play outside with a bunch of people who will appreciate your help. And, you’ll see tons of smiling faces. You know what they say - smiles are contagious, and you’ll leave our events with a big smile on your face.
Meet New People
Our volunteers and participants always leave our events with new friends! That’s because we always have such an amazing time with one another. One of the best reasons to volunteer for adaptive sports jobs with Coastal Adaptive is that you’re bound to leave each event having made a new friend that day. In fact, many of us have grown very close throughout the years!
Our Events Can Change Your Life
When we’ve interviewed some of our volunteers, they’ve all said the same thing - volunteering with Coastal Adaptive Sports has been life changing. Whether it’s been eye-opening for them getting more perspective on the lives of those with disabilities, or just providing a sense of community and happiness, volunteering with us can definitely change people’s views in life.
