Internship Opportunities

intern_webThe National Sports Center for the Disabled offers internship opportunities to individuals looking for fun and rewarding learning experiences. Internships are available at the Mountain location in Winter Park CO and the Metro location in Denver CO.

During the NSCD internship/fieldwork, you will have the opportunity for hands on interactions with participants, reviewing client files, assessing and developing treatment plans, implementing programming, and training and leading group activities. The NSCD programming takes place across the Front Range and Grand County, Colorado with extended trips across the region as well.

The NSCD is a therapeutic outdoor recreation and adaptive sports organization similar to a community based program, not a clinical setting. The NSCD can customize an internship to meet course requirements. We encourage students of Therapeutic Recreation, Adaptive Physical Education, Recreation Studies, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy and other related courses to apply!

Internships must be affiliated with a specific University or College course. If you are not specifically affiliated with a University or College, please consider our parallel fieldwork program using the application process.
