Last updated on March 10, 2016

Volunteers needed for the summer session going on now!

Adapted Aquatics classes help tots, children, teens and adults with disabilities to develop swimming skills. Volunteers assist the participants by helping to keep them safe, and providing support and encouragement. Trained staff lead the classes and provide training and guidance for the volunteers. Volunteers MUST be able to swim.

There are 4 sessions of this class per year, one for each season. The next session begins on Wednesday, April 13 or Sunday, April 17.

Orientation is provided at the beginning of the session. Volunteers should be available for all seven weeks of the class session, an important element of this class is building a relationship with "your" class participant. Experience working with individuals with disabilities is a plus, but not a must.
