Improving Health Outcomes

Community Health depends on individual health. Through Y Health programs, we teach, equip and provide resources and opportunities to children, adults and families so they can live healthy and be well.

A foundational part of being healthy is being physically, mentally and emotionally safe. We are committed to making sure everyone has access to learning the critical skills necessary to be safe around water. 


If we can teach children and adults to be safe around water, they can teach others and they pass it on. Then you have a generation of people who can be safe around water.

Swim for Life

Kheti, a YMCA Swim for Life instructor, believes swimming is a life skill and all children and adults should have access to water safety classes and basic swim lessons. 


Supported in part by the Annual Campaign, Swim for Life provides free water safety sessions for children and adults from under-resourced communities across the Triangle region, providing nearly 300 individuals with potentially lifesaving water safety skills, as well as building confidence and growing connections.
