Introduction Dive Program...

After 25 years of working at the DAV Winter Clinics in Colorado, we are taking our programs directly to Veterans across America.   A vast majority of Veterans can't make the trek to Colorado each winter, so we are bringing our programs to them!  Each Dive Experience Program will be designed and created to fit into the facilities and needs of the local Veterans community.  The program will be a three-day event, designed to give each Veteran a 30 minute scuba diving opportunity, as they are introduced to the therapeutic and fun benefits of being in a temperature regulated and ADA accessible pool.  It is a great opportunity for each Veteran to enjoy the therapeutic benefits that come with swimming and diving in a weightless environment.

Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible!

How can I help?

TVAP is a non-profit organization. Which means that we need you to support these opportunities with your financial support.  Out of every dollar you donate, 97% of that funding goes to program support.  With each Dive Experience Program there are expenses to make it all happen!  Each of these outreach programs costs $25,000, and is funded by private and corporate donations.  These expenses cover items such as instructor and staff travel to each program location, dive and program equipment and shipping, pool facility, special costs associated with heating the pool for the program, all dedicated to making this experience a safe, warm, and fun event for the disabled Veteran and their caregiver.  If you have a special place in your heart for the disabled Veterans community, please consider supporting this program.  If you would like to know how you can make a Dive Experience Program a reality, please visit our donation page. Thank you in advance for your contribution and making the impossible possible!
