Volunteers are needed for AIM's Adaptive Movement program beginning September 11! Class meets weekly, but volunteers do not need to be available for each week in order to be involved. Volunteers sign up for individual shifts based on their availability.

Volunteers are either scheduled as One-on-One support with a dancer or as a floater.One-on-one supports are paired with a student as a Dance Buddy, and provide support unique to the dancer's needs to facilitate a positive experience for them in the classroom. Floaters are not paired with a dancer and instead interact with the entire class and engage them in the class's activities. Floaters may also serve as a teacher assistant and help with prop distribution and clean up during class.

We will have classes weekly on the following days/times:

Saturdays 12:00-1:00 PM for Youth (Ages 5-12)
Saturdays 1:20-2:20 PM for Teens & Young Adults (Ages 12-30)
Sundays 3:30-4:30 PM for Teens & Young Adults (Ages 12-30)
Sundays 4:45-5:45 PM for Teens & Young Adults (Ages 12-30)

Mission Statement

The Adaptive and Inclusive Movement (AIM) Initiative engages people with disabilities by providing opportunities to express and connect through creative movement in an inclusive environment.

Description

Founded in 2022, the AIM Initiative provides adaptive movement classes and summer camps for youth & young adults with disabilities and neurodiversity. Identifying a clear gap in service for this community, we work to provide one-on-one support for each student in our classes & camps with the help of our teen and adult volunteers.
