The AR&LE Ski & Snowboard program is seeking intermediate to advanced ski and snowboard volunteers to teach individuals with developmental disabilities how to ski or snowboard at Hyland Hills in Bloomington. You will be provided with training how to teach an individual how to ski or snowboard. For a successful season 80 - 90 volunteers are needed. Our program serves around 70 students of various ages and abilities each year. Without volunteers our program would not be possible or the huge success that it is!
