Prevent Drowning Foundation of San Diego believes drowning is preventable and it is our vision to teach every child in San Diego how to swim! Since 2009, our purpose has been simple, we do everything we can to prevent drowning and save lives of children by targeting under-served communities that need swim lessons and aquatic water and ocean safety education. With our local school, community and aquatic partners, we have impacted tens of thousands of young people in San Diego County and made their lives safer and more enjoyable. 

In addition to teaching kids to swim, the Foundation has two other major priorities. The first is to privately fund and build a state of the art aquatic project that will be the epicenter for aquatic safety in San Diego. It will allow increased SD Junior Lifeguard enrollment and provide a meeting place for all community aquatic partners in San DiegoCounty. The other priority of the Foundation is to continue supporting the 1,400 junior lifeguards and provide annual junior scholarships for underserved children.
