    California Adaptive Rowing Program 

We are a nonprofit organization. Our mission is to provide instruction and training for   competitive and recreational opportunities in the sport of rowing to physically and intellectually challenged individuals.  Participation in physical activities is essential to prevent people with disabilities from surrendering themselves to confinement.  Participants gain self-esteem and a sense of accomplishment.

There is some lifting involved and it is a water sport so you must not mind getting a little wet. We need 2 volunteers per session. All sessions are approximately 2 hours in length. When you have completed each session you will be given a volunteer service voucher verifying your service with our program.
