The LV Project is all about helping others LiVe and LoVe buoyantly. On water, and in life.

During swim season, we dedicate our time and focus to drowning prevention and water safety. Did you know drowning is the #1 cause of accidental death for kids ages 1 - 4, #2 for kids to age 14 and 5th overall? Drowning is a leading killer of our children — littles and bigs. Chances of drowning in open water triple at age 15. Good swimmers can drown, and do. We work year in and year out to educate on water safety. Drownings are preventable.

After swim season, our focus shifts to projects that help people LiVe life more buoyantly. We’ve completed hundreds of buoyancy projects through our school LV Clubs, service projects and donations to worthwhile charities. It’s all about giving people in need a lift, when they need it most.
