At Hand in Hand, it is our belief that all people - regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, geographical location, level of education, or socioeconomic status - should have access to lifesaving survival swimming skills and water safety education. We believe that the lack of ability to pay should NEVER inhibit anyone from having access to these lessons that could quite literally save a life.
That is why we, along with our friends at Judah Brown Project & Live Like Jake, are happy to offer swim lesson financial assistance to children and adults in our community.
Hand in Hand's Local Outreach Program runs all year beased on availability, located in Kernersville, NC. It is open to participants ages 7 years old to adults. Qualified participants receive basic water safety training with either a volunteer or an American Red Cross certified instructor. Participants will be introduced to basic water skills, including breath control, basic float and depending on the participants skill level, they may be introduced to strokes, snorkling & diving. Parents will also learn about water safety.
This program is funded by generous donations, sponsorships, and grants of individuals and businesses in the community.
*Please note that in order to build confidence in the water and learn more advanced skills such as a lifesaving swim-float-swim sequence and stroke techniques, participants should consider continuing their training after the 5 day program with Safe Swim NC.
