U.S. Ski/Snowboard Association's Military Mentorship Program Is First Of A Kind
Paralympic competitors have returned home from Sochi to welcome the good news about the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association's, Military Mentorship Program. PenFed (Pentagon Federal Credit Union) is this year's sponsor.
This is a first-of-its-kind initiative for athletes and U.S. military, which includes wounded warriors and retired service members, to create meaningful relationships and provide motivational experiences.
“The culture of the USSA is built on being ‘Best in the World,’ and on teamwork, commitment, and the values of the organization, and through this program we are reinforcing that message,” says USSA’s Luke Bodensteiner.
The Military Mentorship Program, founded by Army veteran and former U.S. Ski Team members and coach Robi Powers, will help enable veterans, active-duty service members, and top athletes to train together and share their personal stories of teamwork, overcoming obstacles, perseverance and reaching their full potential.
