Coordinator, Swim Sail Science Program


SwimSailScience (SSS) is a no-cost, fun, three-week program for Boston Public School students going into grades 4, 5, and 6 who are identified at being at risk of summer learning loss and who can most benefit from summer programming. The program participants are from low-income neighborhoods, have behavior and/or learning disabilities, have emotional issues, and are disadvantaged. During our program we provide students with three hours of sailing lessons, one hour of swimming lessons and one hour of hands-on, engaging science lessons. The students who attend also receive transportation to and from the sailing center, breakfast, lunch, and reusable water bottles all at no cost.
