Volunteers Play a Crucial Role in the Success of Pro Football Camp

      Without the support of our volunteers, Pro Football Camp would not be able to make a lasting impact on the children who come. Each year, dozens of volunteers from around Colorado Springs offer up their time and energy to help the community and the young athletes at the camp. Every year,
Pro Football Camp returns volunteers from previous years, who enjoy seeing the impact that the NFL athletes have on the kids and the community. One of our former volunteers, now the Assistant Executive Director for Pro Football Camp, Sadie Martinez, says "Volunteering for the camp is a community wide event that gives volunteers an opportunity to be a part of something bigger than themselves and play a role in impacting numerous lives."
       Pro Football Camp, a nonprofit organization, relies heavily on volunteers and sponsors to help fund scholarships, keep costs low, and help ensure that the camp is affordable for families each year.
Volunteers, helping coaches and kids out however they can, are a key pillar in the success of Pro Football Camp. Volunteers are a diverse group: military volunteers from Peterson, Schriever, Cheyenne Mountain, and the Air Force Academy; and local high school and college students, parents of campers, coaches, and more, who understand the profound impact these NFL athletes can have on campers’ character.
      Ryan Taylor, a 2016 volunteer, says "It’s truly incredible, how much of an impact the pros, coaches, and volunteers can have on these kids. When you’re doing drill work with the NFL athletes and the next round of kids comes over, you can just see a fire in the kids’ eyes when they realize they get to learn from these NFL players. It’s such a rewarding feeling to realize that volunteering your time and your effort has helped to make a highlight in these kids’ lives and serve as an inspiration for the future. It’s a great opportunity to give back to the community, enjoying the sunshine and playing football with kids and NFL athletes for three days. I’d tell anyone looking for a great volunteer opportunity, and a great experience, to come to this camp!"
     Join us from July 11th-13th at Vista Ridge High School from 8-11:30 a.m. for the 12th annual Pro Football Camp.
