Prevent Drowning Foundation of San Diego, formerly known as the San Diego Junior Lifeguard Foundation, believes drowning is preventable and it is our vision to teach every child in San Diego how to swim!
Since 2009, our purpose has been simple, we do everything we can to prevent drowning and save lives of children by targeting under-served communities that need swim lessons and aquatic water and ocean safety education. With our local school, community and aquatic partners, we have impacted thousands of young people in San Diego County and made their lives safer and more enjoyable.
Over the last year, the Prevent Drowning Foundation of San Diego funded $150,000 impacting over 10,500 people within the San Diego community. With this funding, we were able to help approximately 6,000 kids to experience swim lessons/visits to the beach along with 4,500 aquatic safety lectures.
