JoJo's Hope is an interactive aquatic curriculum that includes games, songs, and laughter. It incorporates a well-organized, but spontaneous lesson plan. As participants obtain individual success, strength, a sense of achievement, and comfort in the water, group activities increase. Within a few weeks, each member experiences benefits that are physical, psychological and socially rewarding.

JoJo's Hope works because the use of an aquatic medium enables the disabled and impaired individual to preform activities that would be virtually impossible on dry land. Since 90% of the body weight is displaced on land may discover the ability to walk, swim, and perform new movements in water.

JoJo's Hope is an avenue for learning how to swim and results in therapeutic benefits. To ensure a safe and friendly environment, parents (or guardians) take part in all water activities, unless pre-arranged. In addition, water safety instructors, adapted physical education teachers, and physical therapists rotate among the participants and parents.
