You will have a blast sharing a day at the beach with kids with special needs. No experience or special skills required. We have opportunities to make a real difference for every volunteer, and consistently hear from our volunteers that their day was their best day, which is why most of our volunteers join us on a regular basis.
We have fun positions in and out of the water, some require special skills and experience others simply require and open mind and the ability to have fun.
Beach Buddies - Be paired with one of our kids with special needs to be their buddy for the day to help them make the most of their day at the beach. (this is one of the favorite volunteer positions - you won’t believe what an impact this may have on you!)
Our volunteer base ranges from 12 years old (when accompanied by a parent) to 80+, and come from careers as rocket scientists (seriously) to students, and everything in between.
You will feel welcome from the moment you check in. We will introduce you to those who have been volunteers before to show you the ropes. We have a have a group overview, training, discussion about the day at the beginning of every event.
Our day starts at 8:00AM and runs till about 2:00 including take down and packing up.
