The Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County Aquatics program is dedicated to educate in drowning prevention, youth development and social responsibility. It’s our personal mission to provide services in a safe and supervised environment.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County teams up with The American Red Cross and the Centennial Campaign program (redcross.org/centennialswim) to help significantly reduce the cost of Lifeguarding and Water Safety Instructor training to qualified club members, which opens the door to many job opportunities and even more youth, will be able to gain the life skill of swimming.
Upon returning home to the U.S. after competing in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Michael launched the Michael Phelps Foundation and embarked upon an eight-city tour across the country to share his Dream, Plan, Reach message with Boys & Girls Clubs of America members.
In 2009, along with the help of KidsHealth.org and Michael Phelps Swimming, we developed our signature program, im, named for Michael’s signature event the Individual Medley. im is a water-safety, wellness, and goal-setting program for Boys & Girls Clubs of America members and Special Olympics International athletes.
