There will be a certified YMCA instructor that will pair each volunteer to a participant to work one-on-one with him/her. The junior program takes place in the shallow end and the intermediate program takes place in the deep end. This program does not require that you have swimming certifications, though you are required to take a quick and free online YMCA child protection training. You do not need experience working with people with disabilities to qualify; as long as you have a positive attitude you will feel the satisfaction of impacting another person’s life through your time and effort. Volunteers should feel comfortable and confident as swimmers.
