Safety Around Water – Swim For Life

On August 2, 2010 six teenagers from two families drowned in Shreveport’s Red River while trying to save a friend who had slid into deeper waters.  As a response, we developed our Safety Around Water – Swim For Life program.  During each academic year, every single Caddo Parish second grader receives water safety training for four days at the Y.  Caddo Parish buses a different school of second graders to the Y every week from Monday-Thursday.
