Swim With Callie LLC’s purpose is to make learning how to swim more accessible. They do this by equipping youth to swim safely through fun and interactive activities. The core of this business promotes positive childhood development cognitively, physically, and emotionally. According to the CDC, aside from birth defects, drowning is the number one cause of death for children 1-4 years of age; learning to swim can reduce this risk of drowning by as much as 88%. Currently, their main project is publishing a waterproof instructional storybook that teaches swim basics.
