Project S.A.F.E.

The YMCA of Austin - in collaboration with Colin's Hope - is working toward the goal of providing all area first graders with education on safety, aquatics, and fitness activity. The program is Project SAFE (Safety, Aquatics, Fitness, Education).

Hear from some of grateful parents and schools:

  • "Both teachers and parents agree that water safety is an extremely important life skill. Many parents cannot afford swim lessons and truly appreciate the opportunity. Thank you for all you do!"
  • "This is the third year my school has participated. The feedback from parents has been enthusiastic and positive."
  • "Would I return again? Absolutely! The kids returned more focused and positive. The team building and camaraderie really transferred in to the classroom."
  • "Love the instructors! Very kind to the students and make them feel comfortable."
  • They (kids) were all sad when our two weeks ended and wanted to continue to attend the Y daily. They loved the lessons and wrote and talked about the experience daily."
