The NAC alongside WWP is the reason I am now married. Without this program I don't know if would be alive today. Now I feel normal and like I belong, I used to let my disability control me and now i know its just a small challenge n a limitless world. Thank you so much for all that you do!!!! The staff is amazing, knowledgeable, and genuinely care.

The NAC is a great organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals with all abilities. I have been impressed with their staff and board members who are caring and compelled to make the NAC a leader in outdoor recreation for individuals with disabilities. I have seen the positive impact they have on individuals and groups. As I veteran I am especially impressed with their military programs. I have been involved with the NAC for a year and look forward to working with the organization for many more years to come.

Volunteering for NAC this summer impacted me greatly. It felt great seeing these people do adaptive water sports - experiencing the same joy waterskiing that I have experienced. I'd recommend their services to anyone! I can't wait to help out in the winter ski/snowboard programs.

While our motto has been "If I can do this I can do anything" I feel more inspired then the people I teach. As a result of the training received at the NAC I volunteer with other similar organizations. The staff at the NAC is a group of dedicated individuals helping those with disabilities achieve the highest. There is no higher calling then that.

As an 18 year old taking a gap year before college, I volunteered as a peer partner in the Ski Program last winter, and the Archery Program this past summer. I was able to help people with all kinds of disabilities learn to ski or to shoot an arrow. It was fun and rewarding and I couldn't believe the difference the National Ability Center makes in the lives of those who come to participate in their adaptive recreation programs. Thank you, National Ability Center, for allwoing me this tremendour opportunity!

The National Ability Center in Park City, Utah, is an inspiring and transformational place. It empowers individuals of ALL abilities through sport, recreation, and educational opportunities. Volunteering in the Ski Program, I have seen individuals build confidence and self-esteem. In the past few years the Center has been involved in the Wounded Warrior Project. It has been instrumental in helping these military individuals to regain their confidence and capabilities, as well as work through the challenges presented in their post-military life. The campus itself is a beautifully serene and peaceful place and a perfect place for healing and nurturing!
