The Sunday Swim and Sing program offers therapeutic recreation and socialization for individuals (ages 7-35) with moderate to severe neurological disabilities while providing three hours of weekly respite for their parents and caregivers.
The program is looking for dedicated, compassionate volunteers to work one-on-one with individuals during interactive music therapy and then swimming. During music therapy, participants, staff, and volunteers play instruments, sing along, and move around with a certified music therapist. Music is followed by a free swim when participants, staff, and volunteers have fun relaxing in a shallow pool.
The program is held in Newton on Sundays from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.
- Commit to attending a minimum of 15 sessions a year (held on Sundays, during the day)
- Attend an initial interview and training
- At least 18 years old
- Provide a minimum of two references
- Undergo a CORI check
