Empowering the Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC)

Community in Water Safety

Are you ready to make a splash and find your way to the water? We are thrilled to introduce our upcoming swimming program, dedicated to providing water safety education and access to local swim classes within the BIPOC community. Dive into creating a new relationship between you and the water!

Presented by More Woman Surf,
Local Ys & Juneteenth Downeast

Program Highlights:

  1. ENHANCE WATER SAFETY: Gain vital skills to
    navigate pools, lakes, and oceans safely, ensuring the well-being of yourself and your loved ones. Everyone deserves the chance to feel confident and secure in the water.


  2. ACCESSIBILITY FOR ALL: Financial barriers should never hinder the opportunity to learn a life-saving skill. By offering scholarships, we aim to provide equal access to swim classes and empower individuals and families within the BIPOC community.
