Soul River/New Currents, Outdoors invites inner city youth to participate in a water-based survival event. This event program includes opportunities for participants to learn safe interactions in a water environment, and will help effectively break a fear of water. The US Coast Guard Auxiliary (USCGA) will lead and instruct on basic cold-water survival techniques. Our goal is to diminish the often generational fear of water, inspire young minds about career opportunities within the USCGA, raise awareness and consciousness about the health of our waterways and ecosystems, and educate smart, young anglers/outdoors-people as they pursue water-based activities.
June 28, 2014 1pm – 5pm
