Summer is for swimming, and few organizations know that more than the LA84 Foundation and the USA Swimming Foundation. The two organizations are partnering this summer to fund reduced-cost swim lessons for underserved youth across Southern California and beyond.
See NBC4 reporter Michelle Valles’ full report on what will be an exciting season in the pool. Much of the segment was filmed at the LA84 Foundation/John C. Argue Swim Stadium in Exposition Park, and LA84 is noted at the 1:16 mark. The 100+ youth at the pool are enrolled in programs at the EXPO Center, an LA84 grantee. LA84’s Learn to Swim program will teach over 15,000 youth across 100+ participating pools in 2017 while also offering four aquatic sports as part of its Summer Splash program.
