Harris and Brown

Charities


Harris and Brown, is committed to supporting our communities. This year we are excited to announce our collaboration with Diversity in Aquatics, Inc.


Diversity in Aquatics, Inc. Link to external website, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose goal is to decrease the rate of drowning victims worldwide by helping to create, promote and support aquatic programs in the United States and abroad. It also serves as a forum for interaction, communication, and news to promote diversity within the aquatic community and curve drowning disparities.


This year, Harris and Brown and Diversity in Aquatics, will present a unique ten-day sailing adventure and aquatic symposium. Along with experiencing sailing at its best, the participants will host a two day water safety event that is child-focused. With the support of the USVI Swimming Federation the lives of approximately 400 children will be impacted through educational hands on stations such as:

*Swimming basics
*Putting on and wearing a life jacket
*Life Guarding Skills
*Reach-throw recues
*Boat safety
*Scuba Diving
*Marine Life
