STARS offers college students and/or recent graduates the opportunity to gain practical work experience through our internship program in the adaptive sports field. Interns will receive hands-on experience helping individuals with disabilities recreate in the outdoors in beautiful Steamboat Springs, Colorado!
Our interns bring a large range of experience to our program, not just limited to adaptive recreation. Winter interns are primarily focused on clients through our on-snow programs of downhill skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and Nordic skiing; but will be exposed to other areas of STARS business that may include, administrative positions, staff and volunteer trainings, observing and teaching private and group lessons, camps, local programs, fundraisers, and outreach.
Past interns come from a wide array of backgrounds and school studies, such as Outdoor Education, Recreation, Recreation for Special Populations, Health & Exercise Science, Kinesiology, Community-based Therapeutic Recreation, Hospitality & Tourism Management, Sports Management, Nonprofit Management, Program Administration & Management, Psychology, Sociology, Physical Education, Development/Fundraising, and other related fields. We do not currently have a CTRS on-staff so we will not be able to fulfill Therapeutic Recreation internships for those pursuing a CTRS.
We are currently accepting applications for our Winter Internship Program and look forward to receiving your application!
