Homestead Y Makes Kids Safer Around Water

Homestead Y makes kids safer around water

Thanks to an Ocean Reef Community Foundation Grant, the Homestead YMCA Family Center has partnered Le Jardin Head Start to teach 500 kids ages 3 to 5 years old how to swim at the Y as a part of their school day program.

For the second year, the grant allows the Y to provide free swim lessons to the students at the Y as part of their school day program. It covers the lessons, transportation, program supplies, water safety talks and parent awareness activities.
