The YMCA of Delaware’s Water Wise program started in 2008 as a way to help kids in Wilmington learn about water safety. Since that time, the program has expanded to not only include safety around water education, but also swim lessons that run throughout the year for students at several of the Wilmington schools. Over the last few years, the program has continued to grow and 2015 was another impactful year. Here is a snapshot that showcases our growth over the last four years.
