Share the Joy!


Our special swimmers have physical and/or developmental challenges such as cerebral palsy and autism. Our talented helpers will work directly with our special swimmers each week. You will be paired with a swimmer and likely another helper to create fun activities to meet the needs of our swimmers. Training is provided. Your creativity, good energy, and fun are all welcome! We hope that you build a special relationship with your swimmer as SNAP is often a highlight of the week for our swimmers and volunteers.

We ask that you commit to at least one quarter. Our classes on on Fridays from 4:30-6:00. Classes typically run from Oct-Dec, Jan-Mar, and April-May. You must be a capable swimmer, enjoy children, have a good sense of humor, and a playful nature. Our volunteers span the lifespan - it's great fun for all! : )
