Drowning is the second leading cause of injury death of infants and children younger than 15 years old in the U.S. For every child who drowns, four children are hospitalized for near-drowning. Unfortunately, many families cannot afford the cost of swim lessons. You Can Help.
The Dallas Park and Recreation Department offers low cost swim lessons at locations throughout the city. For only $40, you can help us teach a child to swim. Your $40 donation will fund a two week session of swim lessons for one child. Swimming is a skill every child should learn. Swimming adds fun and fitness to a child’s life, and most importantly, may one day save their life.
The City of Dallas Park and Recreation Department maintains a scholarship fund to help those youth who do not have the financial means to participate in swim lessons. The scholarship program is made possible through donations from businesses and individuals primarily through the water bill donation envelope program. The number of scholarships and the maximum award amounts vary from year to year based on the success of fundraising efforts.
