Special Swimmers Need Volunteer Partners
148 people are interested
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 at least one hour per week for one semester (more hours are fine). Our classes are on Fridays at 5:00 and 6:00pm and on Sundays at 11:30, 12:30, and 1:30. Classes typically run from late Sept-Dec and late Jan-May. We have a mini SNAP in the summer. 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! : )
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
We'll work with your schedule.
