About the NSCD:
The National Sports Center for the Disabled (NSCD) enables the human spirit through therapeutic recreation and sport. Each year more than 3,100
children and adults with disabilities participate in our programs to improve the quality of their lives. With specially trained staff, a custom adaptive
equipment lab and over 1,200 volunteers, the NSCD provides therapeutic recreation through a variety of winter and summer sports and activities
to individuals with almost any physical, cognitive, emotional and/or behavioral diagnosis. Year-round programming is based out of Winter Park
Resort and Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
The Winter Program intern gains a working knowledge of the NSCD programs and procedures. The NSCD intern will assist in implementation of
Adaptive Sports, Paralympic training and therapeutic recreation. The internship is based on the National Council for Therapeutic Recreation
Certification (NCTRC) guidelines and requirements where applicable.
Winter internships are from Late December through mid-April. The duration of the internship can vary based on programming need and intern
request. The commitment is a minimum of 4 months, for 32-40 hours a week, with work days to include weekends and holidays. Program locations
determined by activity schedule.
