Swim Safety Partnership

The Swim Safety Partnership between the City of Boston and the Boston Tri aims to reduce the risk of drowning while addressing racial and economic inequities.

2022 Pillar Grant funding will allow the partnership to:

  • Offer free YMCA swim lessons for children and adults.
  • Expand the lifeguard workforce through free training.
  • Implement a pilot program with free swimming lessons as part of curriculum for some Boston Public Schools students.
