The goal is to obtain the swimming diploma! The swimmers for the A diploma need 1 on 1 guidance and that's why we are looking for you! You work together in peace and quiet and through a clear step-by-step plan towards the requirements of the A diploma. Lessons take place between 10:10 AM and 12:00 PM and each lesson lasts 35 minutes. Our volunteers indicate that this voluntary work requires creativity, communication, cooperation and empathy. Then it turns out that surprisingly much is possible! Most of our swimmers obtain 1 or more swimming diplomas and that regularly sheds a tear. The minimum age of our volunteers is 18 years and swimming diplomas A and B are required. We offer you comprehensive guidance, support and training. This volunteer work brings depth and many fun experiences. And finally being able to celebrate success together is the icing on the cake! In addition, a volunteer outing and Christmas drink are organized every year. If you are looking for meaningful volunteer work, you have come to the right place!
