Jeff has been volunteering with Therapeutic Recreation since October, 2019. He coaches Soccer, Basketball, Unified Basketball, and assists with Sport Camps. Jeff was looking for a way to give back to the community when he saw our request for volunteers in the Highlands Ranch Community Association Newsletter. The rest is happy history. We have been so grateful to have Jeff on our Volunteer Staff. He is thoughtful and patient with the athletes, and brings lots of coaching skills to the table. Some of his highlights include watching two Unified athletes score their first baskets late into the season, and teaching Frisbee Golf to the athletes at Winter Break Sports Camp.
In recognizing how volunteering has changed his life, Jeff says, “I see volunteering as an opportunity. You get back more than you can ever give. My time working with the participants in the TR Program has been both humbling and inspiring. It has simply made me a better person.”
His advice to new volunteers? “Just do it!”
Thanks Jeff, you are June’s Volunteer of the Month!
