You can VOLUNTEER to be a KAYAK BUDDY for our clients for our upcoming sessions this Fall and Winter at Grandview Heights Aquatic Centre in Surrey.
HOW? All you need to do is contact us in August, then you will complete an application and other supplemental forms in addition to completing a criminal record search. When all the paper work is completed you will be invited to join our Volunteer training Session. We appreciate your promptness in submitting Criminal Record Checks as they take a few weeks to get completed and we are required to have all paper work completed for each volunteer.
WHEN? FALL TRAINING Sunday afternoon, date TBD
WINTER TRAINING Sunday afternoon, date TBD
More details and a list of what to bring will be shared with you closer to the dates of training. Please note that we are not able to offer a second training session. We can only offer a volunteer shadowing orientation as a substitute to our training session, not ideal but an option if you must miss the training sessions.
WHAT? You will have the opportunity to complete some basic disability/chronic condition training as well as the basics of Stand Up Paddle Boarding, Aquatic games/ activites to help clients achieve their goals at our pool programs. You will work one-on-one with a client as their paddling buddy, each session, so we want to equip you to guide clients to succeed.
WHEN? The volunteer commitment for the Fall Season is from Sundays afternoons for 4-6 weeks at a time.
WHY? Because you can really change the world, One Client, One Life, One water adventure at a time!
Join us! We would love to have you be a part of the Power For All Family this season!
