Children of color are two to three times more likely to drown than Caucasian children. Los Pesecitos (Spanish for “the little fishes”) is a swim program at East YWCA that teaches Latino children about water safety, and how to swim.
The program is funded entirely by donations, and there is no charge to children who participate in the program. You can fund swim lessons for a child by making a donation.
Los Pesecitos swim lessons take place each summer. Registration opens Summer 2019 and participants must register in-person at the East Community Center.
