Youth education

We’re here to help you with everything you need to teach the children in your classroom or youth group how to stay safe in, on and around the water.

Educating kids about water safety is fundamental to saving lives at sea and a core part of our prevention work. The more young people we can reach with our water safety messages, the more lives we can save now and in the future. As a teacher or youth leader, you really can make a lifesaving difference.
