Sadly “Drowning is a leading cause of death for children…” according to the Red Cross. As the Red Cross also states “Together, we can change that”. This summer I will have the awesome opportunity to provide FREE Red Cross Certified swim lesson instruction to children and youth ages 6-13. The goals of my project are t: (1) teach a group of children and youth how to swim effectively and safely so that perhaps one day they may want to teach the next generation of swimmers. (2) Is to bring awareness to this great organization (Red Cross) that helps promote water safety through swim lessons and other water activities.
