We believe by working together, we can accomplish much more than we can on our own. Use your voice to help raise awareness about water safety education in our community. Let us use our expertise to make our community safer, while you come alongside us by sponsoring a program. When you support the FWDPC, your gift is going directly to serving our community through in-water skills training, dry land education, virtual classes, water safety tools and equipment that help families stay safe in and around water.
The FWDPC leverages expertise and resources to provide water safety education at various locations across Fort Worth. When the venue of the event is a pool, both in-water skills training and water safety education will be provided. When the venue is dry-land only, water safety education will be the emphasis, with encouragement to participate in a future event that includes in-water skills training. Our model strives to make a generational impact, focusing not only on educating children, but also providing parents and caregivers with tools to help keep their families safe in and around water.
This week has been an exciting, exhilarating, scary, event of wonderful challenges; all of which have been accomplished so far. These classes have been like a puzzle. You connect one piece together slowly with the other as you learn and then putting it all together you form a picture. Practice, it is found is the key. Personal events and life for this week have been functioning around the drowning prevention classes. One looks forward to what the next week holds. Reviewing what is learned and incorporating the new is so soothing. Just can't wait to see "My Finished Product".
