2020 Safety Around Water Overview

The 8-session Safety Around Water course, taught by certified YMCA swim instructors and lifeguards, teaches children basic water safety and swimming skills that reduce their risk of drowning and give them confidence in and around water. Since the program launched in 2015, it has grown from serving 300 children at six local apartment communities to engaging 1,400 children across 28 apartment communities during the summer.  Learn more about Safety Around Water
