We are looking for fun and energetic people with a love of the water who want to share their skill with others and make our next generations safe in and around water. Learning to swim is a great way to boost a child’s self-confidence and teach them a lifelong skill that will open many new experiences. Volunteers will be trained and have flexibility in the sessions that they agree to. Our goal is to create an environment where a trusting relationship is developed between instructor and student and both celebrate the progress.
