Registration

Volunteers
Chaperones: Chaperones are volunteers 21 years or older who assist with supervision. Chaperones are present at service and recreation sites to help ensure the overall safety and well-being of the summer stretch group. If you volunteer to be a chaperone it is not expected that you will be able to assist every day of Summer Stretch; we are flexible at using adults when they are available.
