Official Mentorship Opportunities

Applications are being accepted to be an official National Veterans Wheelchair Games (NVWG) Mentor.

We have opportunities for two Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Rehabilitation Therapists or Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) Sport Chapter Chairpersons to get involved in our NVWG Official Mentorship program to learn about adaptive sports and help develop more opportunities for Veterans in their home communities. The travel dates are July 15 – 23. All travel, hotel and meals will be provided by support from both the VA and Paralyzed Veterans of America.

The application provides the specifics. If accepted, calls will be set up to help prepare the individuals for the experience in Cincinnati. During the week, the candidates will be assigned to an experienced official to ensure the Games experience is both educational and positive. Additionally, we want to encourage the development of sports programs to involve more Veterans in their home communities and we are committed to working with the candidates during the year to develop programs or tie into the community opportunities.
