Intern Assistant Program
As a part of our one-on-one programs, the SCI Recovery Project schedules one Adaptive Exercise Specialist, and one Intern Assistant per client. This Intern Assistant position is an unpaid student from a local university, studying exercise science, physiology, or related programs. Students typically receive school credit for the hours spent working within our programs through their respective university.
Intern programs are strictly designed to not only provide hands-on experience to the student, but also to assist in the education of exercise and the resulting effects on spinal cord injuries. Students follow a specific curriculum and are required to complete assignments and study peer-reviewed journal articles that relate current research to the SCI Recovery Project program. We staff for 4-5 full-time Intern Assistant positions year-round, which has consisted of anywhere from 4-25 individuals (either full or part-time). If you would like more information on our program, please email us.
Spinal Cord Injury Recovery Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. A holistic exercise-based therapy program offering hope, independence, for individuals living with a spinal cord injury. While the benefits of programs like ours are recognized by the medical community, unfortunately insurance companies still do not.
Although the SCI Recovery Project has progressive grant and foundational support, we ultimately rely on individual donors and community members tax–deductible donations to support our work. Our organization hosts two annual fundraising events, Rounds for Recovery – golf tournament, and Hops for Hope – Beer and Wine Tasting Gala. Donations can be made in any form, some of which are financial contributions, auction items, and corporate sponsorships.
