Diveheart's Tampa / St. Pete team is just starting up and needs community support to help develop Scuba Experience programs for people with disabilities in our area. We've already launched programs with Oak Park School in Sarasota and Eckerd College in St. Petersburg.
Above photos are from our program with Oak Park School where students get to join Diveheart dive buddies and experience freedom underwater! Diveheart helped facilitate the first research into the benefits of scuba diving for people with Autism Spectrum Disorder - see a video about this research here.
Earlier in 2017, Diveheart worked with students from Eckerd College and ran them through our Adaptive Buddy Training course so they could join us on a Diveheart Life-changing Scuba Adventure trip. They donated their efforts and time over spring break and helped adaptive divers escape gravity if just for a short while. Look here to see the results of their experience.
Join us in supporting real change in our community. Let's support good in the world and make a difference. Help us in building confidence, independence and self-esteem with the hope of enricking the quality of life and human spirit for people with disabilities.
