The purpose of this project was to write a grant to implement a free swimming program for foster children 17 years and under in the City of Petaluma. The Petaluma Healthy Youth Swimming Program (PHYSH) will provide a series of six 2-week sessions over the summer to teach swimming skills and swimming safety. The program is expected to increase self-esteem and resiliency among foster children and to decrease the disproportional rates of non-intentional drowning found among impoverished children of color. A part-time Master of Social Work Program Manager will be hired to oversee the program. The City of Petaluma's Parks and Recreation Department will provide in-kind donations of two swimming pools, swimming instructors, and lifeguards. Target stores will donate swimsuits to all registered participants. It was not required that this grant be submitted or receive actual funding to meet thesis requirements.
