Summer is here, and there is an increasing demand for swimming lessons for children. Especially among the Spanish speaking population. To help meet this need, the YWCA is offering the program "Los Pececitos" (Little Fish) to Spanish speaking children this summer.
Los Pececitos is a free scholarship program that teaches children how to swim. Its goal is to try to eliminate the strong drowning statistics among minorities.
The YWCA of Tulsa is offering the classes Tuesdays and Thursdays, 2 P.M. to 5 P.M. at the YWCA Tulsa East location at 8145 East 17th Street in Tulsa. Those who wish to sign up for the program should call the YWCA East Tulsa at 918-628-1030. There program will run June through August this year. So far 72 children have signed up for the June classes.
