Volunteer Spotlight – John Smith

John Smith lives in Germantown, New York and has been a volunteer ski instructor with the Adaptive Sports Foundation’s winter program for eight years.

What brought you to the Adaptive Sports Foundation?

As a employee in the Windham Mountain Sports shop (and a die hard skier), I saw the volunteers at work.  I also talked with them in the shop and learned first hand what a great program the ASF was.

What is the biggest benefit you received as a volunteer?

A wonderful feeling of satisfaction after every lesson!  A bonus is the opportunity to volunteer with upbeat, positive, encouraging, helpful and just plain nice people.

What is your proudest moment at the ASF?

Every time a student smiles and states they had a fun and like skiing!

What advice would you give to someone interested in volunteer at the ASF?

If you are a patient person, like to ski or ride and want to give a student a wonderful day on the snow – go for it!

The ASF is very grateful to all our volunteers.  If you are interested in volunteering, visit
