TBI Raiders was founded in January of 2002. The mission of the organization is to help see that students and young adults who have sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury, also known as a TBI, succeed at their dreams in both school and life. This is a volunteer service that students (with and without a traumatic brain injury) and young adults living with a TBI can participate in online or in person. TBI Raiders also has what student leaders, at Rose State College, at one time called an online city. Students who choose to become involved will learn more in the areas of education, employment, medical, and government.
TBI Raiders is an organization that has two programs:
TBI’s Corner is to provide a source explaining traumatic brain injury and how it affects a specific group of individuals: teens and adults in school. It will further provide answers and resources to those who want to learn more about the disability and find organizations and businesses that can better assist those affected by TBI. It’s primary focus is to emphasize an individual’s re-entry to school.
Members of TBI Raiders is to be a place which the volunteers with and without a TBI can come relax, build an online resume, and highlight and empower the volunteer service and the community work in which individuals who have a traumatic brain injury engage actively. Its primary focus is to emphasize an individuals’ re-entry to the workforce.
Plus we also have three campaigns:
Survive to Vote started in 2005 with the purpose is to get issues important to the disability community out in not just the time of election but out to those who are presently in office working to represent everyone. It is about ensuring elected officials show equal representation for not only societal norms but also those who have disabilities.
Raid Oklahoma is a campaign to get the issues, concerns, and voices of survivors out not just in an election but also in the year between elections as well. It was stated on a conference call how it is an insult to lump TBI into the general disabilities category. It is an insult due to the fact that once you sustain a TBI you will acquire additional disabilities immediately if not in the long run. There is a huge stigma attached with the disability. This has to do with the fact a TBI is known as an “invisible” disability. Some with TBI have noticeable changes in the way they need to live their life. While with others you are unable to tell anything happened to them.
Writing letters to veterans is a campaign I would love to start. I think a group may already be doing this but I would love to do it with TBI Raiders. My father and two of his brothers are/were veterans. I say are/were because we recently lost my Uncle Mike who served in Vietnam and Desert Storm when he was alive. I have a cousin who is in the air force while his two younger brothers are no longer enlisted (one army, one marine). I learned from my father in college that I had scored in the top 1% on the ASVAB test I took my junior year, a couple of months prior to my accident.
