MIAMI, June 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Shake-A-Leg Miami is proud to announce that Volta Global is sponsoring the launch of Sea Worthy, a new program designed to assist young adults with autism and other disabilities to develop skills that will enable them to become independent on the water and prepare them for a job.
The Sea Worthy program, which will begin this summer as part of the Shake-A-Leg Miami Summer Camp, is a model program that will be shared with other organizations around the world.
Marko Dimitrijevic, Chairman of Volta Global said, "Shake-A-Leg Miami is a leader in providing programs to children and young adults with disabilities and we are proud to be a founding partner of the Sea Worthy program they are launching. We look forward to working with Shake-A-Leg Miami to help improve the lives of young adults in our community and invite others to join with us in bringing awareness to the importance of the Sea Worthy program."
"Families raising children with disabilities have tremendous financial challenges as well as limited opportunities for their children aging out of school," said Harry Horgan, president of Shake-A-Leg Miami. "It is philanthropists like Marko Dimitrijevic and Volta Global that make it possible for these kids to participate in the program and enable them to develop the confidence, skills and friendships that will improve their independence and quality of life."
