During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
TBI Raiders Volunteer Service was set up for this purpose: to not only see but also help students who have sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) succeed in both school and life.
This is an opportunity students who live with and without a TBI to get involved in. They have the opportunity to gain job skills, leadership skills, become better managers of their time, and many other opportunities await them. Once they get involved, I will choose four with and without a TBI to be my personal assistants and help me delegate and manage projects and activities. Once they get involved, they would have the choice of wanting to get involved in one of four committees: public relations, website management, funding, newsletter, and research. They will have the choice of deciding what page they wanted to help manage and provide input in on it.
Also they would have the opportunity to meet with leaders around the state, interact with different organizations and businesses, help hold booths, and travel for functions for TBI Raiders. They also will be help raising funds for TBI Raiders, create/design/pass out/hand out flyers, brochures, etc., create banners, set up booths, and work at the booths. They also could decide if they wanted to be involved in TBI Raiders Survived to Vote which is to help get issues affecting not just the TBI Community but the entire Disability Community. There would be the possibility of going on campaign trails and to campaign events.
I will need the volunteers to keep in touch and stay active on the online community boards that I send them the links to.
UPDATE: I have the papers to build up an organization for TBI Raiders on campus at Oklahoma State University. Then we'll use the organization to build a strong disability organization at OSU. I'm still going to work very hard at getting TBI Raiders to become a non-profit but this is a step closer. Email me your ideas of what you think should go in the constitution below. Once we get TBI Raiders formed on campus, then we can start taking a serious look at putting together a disability forum to be held on campus.

To not just see but also help students and young adults who have sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury succeed in both school and life. To give students living with and without disabilities the chance as well an opportunity to not only work together with their peers who live with a TBI but to also learn from one another and make their schools or the communities that they live in a whole lot better. 2 focuses on service: survivors and families
Traumatic Brain Injury affects 1.7 million Americans every year. This is more than what Breast Cancer, HIV/AIDS, Spinal Cord Injuries, and Multiple Scelrosis will affect COMBINED. This is to bring more awareness on the disability and at the same time create more opportunities for students and young adults who live with and without a Traumatic Brain Injury.
This is a volunteer service that both students with AND without disabilities would have the opportunities to gain job skills, leadership skills, become better managers of their time, make a difference in someone else's life, and so much more. This is to create a better life for students and young adults who live with a Traumatic Brain Injury.
We will be working on improving the workforce and education starting here in Stillwater then branching out from there. We are looking at setting up trainings, doing presentations, and having townhall style meetings with those who live with a PTSD & TBI.
We'll work with your schedule.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
