The Paralympic Sports Association (PSA) is a non-profit organization that offers recreation & sport programs to persons with disabilities. We are a volunteer run organization, meaning that all of our programs are run by a wonderful group of volunteers. That being said, the success of each program is dependent on getting volunteers to assist PSA with the implementation of the programs.
Volunteering is a great way to get involved in your community and have some FUN! Other benefits include: gaining valuable training and experience working with persons with disabilities, developing leadership skills, trying something new, making friends, be a part of positive change in the community, and the potential of traveling with local or provincial team.
