What Organizations Will Benefit?

Various organizations in the U.S. that provide swim lessons to children that cannot afford to learn this life-saving skill of swimming because of their economic or cultural standing. Each year, PHTA accepts applications from new or reoccurring organizations. Based on a set criterion, the committee selects organizations that will help contribute to creating 1 million new swimmers.
