Project S.A.F.E.

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

The YMCA of Austin will provide swim instruction, safety education and fitness activities at no charge to parents. Classes take place at YMCA of Austin branches.

The YMCA of Austin taught 2,229 preK & first-graders to swim in the 2017-2018 school year.

Since the Project SAFE inception in 2008-2009 school year, the Austin YMCA has provided free instruction to more than 16,000 children.
