Idea Fair

Mentorship Mondays

How has this idea enhanced your club's operation, etc.?

Mentorship Mondays are swim lessons we provide free of charge for Staff Members, their children, and grandchildren. Our Teen members who need volunteer hours run this program. This is a great start to creating systems and programs in place that enhance our entire club community and give everyone a sense of purpose and appreciation.

How was this idea implemented, and what have been the club members' reactions?

During Mondays in the summertime from 9 to 10 AM when the Club is closed, we host these group lessons. Members reactions have been very supportive and celebrating of this idea. So much in fact that they have transcended their basic excitement and offered additional enhancements like bagels and juice after swim classes, service help from adult members who want to help teach swimming, and community involvement from small local businesses who donate goggles and swimsuits for participants. We aim to start aiding organizations committed to making water safety skills available to everyone in our community regardless of resources, and hosting fundraising events for drowning prevention in the coming years.
