Who we are

Along with a coalition of strategic partners, we provide a learn-to-swim, healthy living, and goal-setting curriculum worldwide through the Boys and Girls Club of America and Special Olympics International. We know that facilitating change is not a one-person job; it takes a family, team, network, and communities to come together and challenge what is by showing what can be. Together, anything is possible.

What we do

Our Cause

We are determined to make the world a healthier and safer place. Drowning is a leading cause of unintentional death for children worldwide and one in five Americans experience mental illness. Learning how to swim can not only save a life in the water, but it can provide a platform to overcome fears, boost self-esteem, and provide overall wellness.

Our Programs

Utilizing the same program Michael used to become successful in his career, our signature IM Program was developed in partnership with Nemours and Michael Phelps Swimming. The IM Program is a multifaceted curriculum that includes a learn-to-swim program, recreational aquatic activities, organized swim training, physical and mental health lessons, and goal-setting guidance.
