We believe every child needs to learn water safety and swimming skills, especially if there is no room in the family budget for swim lessons. During Drowning Prevention Week, the Grand Island YMCA and United Way are partnering to give free swim lessons to kids who otherwise would not be able to participate.* Teaching a child how to swim not only helps prevent accidental drowning but offers a fitness opportunity and pride of accomplishment.
