Black People Will Swim’s sole mission is plain and simple: it’s smashing the stereotype that Black people don’t swim. We want to teach 2,020 Black people and people of color how to swim by December 2020.
We aim to do this through a number of ways with our acronym F.A.C.E. encouraging our community to FACE their fears.
Conquering your fears is hard enough. Why not do it while you’re having fun?
Having a friend or a familiar face to share the experience will not only make it worthwhile, but a reminder that you don’t have to conquer your fears alone.
As you’re taking the first step to learning a new skill, we want to equip you with the proper tools/equipment, and techniques. From hair care, bathsuits, swim trunks to goggles, we’re setting you up for success.
And while we are called Black People Will Swim, we don’t limit ourselves or our services to only Black People. Our door and services are open to everyone.
Our end game is to make a difference! Join the movement. We’re #SwimmingInColor!
