Program and Events Intern

“Great experience working with a variety of adaptive sports and with a variety of age groups. STARS has staff that are fun to work with and their programing makes a positive impact on the community. It is a positive work environment and you get to spend a lot of time in and out of the office learning about how to implement adaptive sports. I got to assist with equine therapy, adaptive biking, hiking, water skiing, mountain biking, swimming, rock climbing and, canoeing/ kayaking. Truly an amazing experience. ”
