Volunteering with Shine:

As a volunteer you will assist participants and their families to have safe and supported access to the beach, ocean, and fun recreational water and beach activities. Volunteers will have the opportunity to connect with each of our guests with special needs and their families as they assist them on the beach and in the water. Volunteering with SHINE will help you gain a feeling of empathy, compassion, leadership, and joy knowing they are directly impacting and making a difference in the lives our guests. Please sign up to volunteer either 1 day, 2 days, or all (registration is separate for each day)! We will email you with details about the positions!

About the Event:

This summer, The Shine Project Foundation is continuing one of our most popular and anticipated free special needs family events - The Beach Fun Days Series! This series kicks off on September 24 th at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas. The second event will be on October 30th at Oceanside Harbor Beach in Oceanside, and finally November 20th at Ponto State Beach in Carlsbad from 9:30am-12:30pm on all three days. This event provides a fun, safe, and structured day at the beach for families with special needs. As the ocean provides healing and therapeutic energy, our community and peer volunteers will help guests learn how to surf, engage with them in the water, play sensory games with them on the beach, and let parents relax and enjoy the beautiful day. A catered lunch will also provided, and all our guests will receive a goodie bag.
