Adaptive Aqua Buddies
We are looking for volunteers ages 15 to adults to join our team as an adapted swim lesson aide – an Aqua Buddy. This is a great opportunity to clock some volunteer hours for National Honor Society, college applications, or even more significantly, to give back by sharing your talents.
Our Aqua Buddy Program aims to provide swim lesson instruction and water safety to children who move, learn, communicate or behave at a different pace. We are looking for an 8 week commitment, once a week. You can even “job share” this commitment with another volunteer. As an aide you would simply assist the student in following the lead instructor’s guidance throughout the class.
We currently have a 6 year old boy and an 8 year old girl waiting for an Aqua Buddy so that they can take swimming lessons.
If you would like additional information, please contact Anna Hutchinson at 630-377-1405 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
