Benefits of Volunteering

The greatest reward when volunteering with ASPNC is seeing the smiles on the faces of our participants as they engage in life-affirming experiences.

Volunteers also become part of a dedicated community of people who truly enjoy giving of themselves and their time.

Here are comments from some of our volunteers.

“Being a volunteer with ASPNC has turned out to be a wonderful fit for me. I feel that my life has been enriched by sharing my love of outdoor activities with participants and fellow volunteers.” – NR

“As an ASPNC volunteer, I’ve received far more than I’ve given.” – CDC

“Seeing a client progress from walking on skis to performing a wedge and then making some turns and then riding on the chair lift at Tucker Brook on Cannon Mountain is as thrilling to me as it is to my client.” – CK

 “I have volunteered in many different capacities over my lifetime but my work with the Adaptive Program is by far my favorite and most meaningful.” – KM

“When I can coax a smile of achievement from someone, we both enjoy a warming sense of well-being. Since ASPNC activities are physical and usually outdoors it’s even better, because I value both so much.” -AC

Why Volunteer?  – “Good works, good people, good exercise, good fun.” – JR
