In January 2002 TBI Raiders was created and has evolved into something astounding. The organization was created by someone who is now a 13 1/2 year survivor of a left-right Traumatic Brain Injury. Director Payne has found a way to beat the odds and created this organization to help others beat the odds. In the beginning the organization was solely for students who had suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury. But as time past and especially after she traveled to Washington DC to represent Oklahoma youth living with disabilities, she realized how much something more needed to be done.
So in July of 2004 she turned the organization from being solely an online club for students who had sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury to a volunteer service for students living with/out a Traumatic Brain Injury as well as young adults who had suffered the disability. By choosing to become involved in this, the volunteer would be able to:
- be part of a committee - newsletter, research, web design, advocating, or public relations
- help with the newsletter or website or pr events
- learn job skills needed for the workforce
- make a difference in their community
- interact in some way with state/congressional leaders
- learn leadership skills
- learn more about the job field they either are wanting to or are presently majoring in at school
- and just so much more!
About TBI Raiders Volunteer Service
3700 W 19th Ave. Apt M-1, Stillwater, OK 74074, US
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.
