DAPS MAGIC has a fantastic team of volunteers that creates the magic that is shared daily with its viewers. This is a team effort that brings together a bunch of different people to help create something special. Currently DAPS MAGIC has people who write content and cover events for the various areas of the website, film videos, brainstorm ideas, photograph, design logos/images, help with technology, and keep DAPS MAGIC focused as a part of the DAPs Brain Trust. Each of these jobs are important and each member is valued for their contribution. Please CLICK HERE if you would be interested in joining our team.
