Our multicultural swimming and water safety pathway aims to build the water safety skills, knowledge and confidence of CALD community members.
We do this through a series of capacity building activities which individuals can progress through to become employed within the aquatics industry and become role models for their community.
The activity pathway is as follows;
– Swimming lessons
– Training courses (pool lifeguard, swim teacher, beach lifesaver)
– Employment or volunteering
We connect with over 450 community partner organisations to directly engage 22,000 participants annually.
The training and employment pathway has multiple benefits;
– Improved settlement & social cohesion
– Improved water safety
– Increased access and visitations to local community facilities
– Role model affect which promotes water safety to the wider multicultural community
– Local facilities and lifesaving clubs aiming to have a workforce who reflects their community demographically
