The program is Project S.A.F.E. (Safety, Aquatics, Fitness, Education).

Hear from the Parents & Schools!

  • "This is the third year my school has participated. The feedback from parents has been enthusiastic and positive."
  • "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 that you do!!!!!"
  • "Love the instructors! Very kind to the students and make them feel comfortable."
  • "They (kids) were all sad when our 2 weeks ended and wanted to continue to attend the Y daily. They loved the lessons and wrote and talked about the experience daily"
  • "Would you return again? Absolutely! The kids returned more focused and more positive. The team building and camaraderie really transferred in to the classroom."
