Program Funded: Franklin School-Based Case Management Program
Number of Students Served in 2018: 152
Fourth grade students from the local schools are given an opportunity to learn lifesaving skills in and around water. Each fourth-grade class is transported by their school to the James L. Camp, Jr. Family YMCA. The students receive time in the pool and practice techniques that can help them and others when in and around different bodies of water such as pools, lakes and the ocean. Many of the children who participate have never been in a pool or had instruction on how to safely be in and around a body of water. This program exposes all students to lifesaving skills that will hopefully keep them safe around water.
That’s what it means to LIVE UNITED.
