Water safety program featured on front page of Providence Journal

The July 29th edition of the Providence Journal featured a front page story about the swimming program for inner-city youth that is organized by Providence Community Health Centers and held at Pods Swimming in East Providence. The program is supported by a grant from the USA Swimming Foundation.

In these classes, children learn the elementary backstroke, how to float, and other valuable water safety skills. There are two four-week sessions of classes, held in July and August. This year, more than 40 children have registered for the classes.
