Adapted Aquatic Volunteers
Volunteers assist in the water with our trained instructors. Our volunteers are how we are able to do what we do for the children. Volunteers help our swimmers have their aquatic experience. Volunteers help to guide and assist the swimmer while in the and out of the water. If you have any time on your weekends or afternoons we could use your help. It is a great way to help a child, get some water time, and can be a chance for the family to do something together.

Adapted Aquatic volunteers must complete an application and a two-hour orientation prior to participating in the program.
