Trained volunteers from Tulane University teach water safety skills and basic swimming skills so that all children may have greater confidence in the water.

Lessons are held on Sundays with two 8-week sessions per year, one in the fall and one in the spring.

The organization currently holds lessons once a week at Reily Recreational Center at Tulane University. Currently 50 active volunteers provide swimming lessons to about 80 children per semester.


The Reily Recreational Center is located at Tulane University at 31 McAlister Dr, New Orleans, LA 70118

Future Goals and Objectives

Swim 4 Success plans to expand its program by accommodating more children to participate in swim lessons per semester. By recruiting qualified volunteers and streamlining the progression through the program levels, we hope to involve more children from the New Orleans area.

Expansion throughout the New Orleans area is the organization’s priority. In the long term, Swim 4 Success also plans to expand throughout Louisiana.
