When you volunteer with Safety Around Water, you help prevent drowning in our community. Volunteer opportunities include:

Assist YMCA Swim Instructors: Hop in the water with our certified swim instructors and help teach kids to swim by supporting the instructor as a teaching aid.

Donate Swimsuits: Many of the kids that participate in Safety Around Water have never stepped foot in a swimming pool and do not own a swimsuit. You can help by donating new or gently used swimsuits for ages 3 – 14 years. 

Bring Snacks: Learning basic water safety skills is hard work, and many kids are hungry when they finish their session. Bring a nourishing snack to share with the kids.

Distribute Marketing Materials: It is critical that we get the word out to families in each of the apartment communities we serve. Every two weeks we distribute flyers and door hangers at one of the sites. It is a great way to get your steps in for the day and get to know the families.

If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the information below and our Volunteer Coordinator will contact you regarding next steps.
