BCSS is continuously in conversation with local community leaders to learn how to best support the surrounding residents and meet their needs.

For example, annual deaths on boats in stormy weather are common, as many residents are unable to swim. BCSS and its partners work with children and adults to support safety and rescue in the water by providing basic flotation devices and instructions. Swimming assignments take place once to twice per month as part of BCSS’s ongoing community work. BCSS is currently building more programs following this giving back strategy to support existing and future needs from the local communities.
