SwemKids is a nonprofit school-based program that teaches children introductory swimming lessons and water safety skills as a part of their school's curriculum. This model ensures that children are exposed to the water early and gain important life-saving skills to make sure they are safe while having fun.

How SwemKids

Impacts the Community

We strive to bring awareness and enrich the lives of the youth in the community.  SwemKids has offered opportunities to some of the youth seen selling water bottles and teaching them to swim so they can become youth swim instructors.  This impact in our community helps 16+ year olds to partner with us, build confidence, keep them safe and educate them on water safety.  This is one of many of the opportunities we utilize to impact the community for the better.  Bridging the gap where some minority youth are lost.
