Strength through Swimming. In collaboration with BHSU and the Young Center Pool, 20 APE students will have an opportunity twice a month during the Spring semester (8 trips total) to utilize the facilities. This program would introduce swimming as a lifetime fitness activity for individuals with varying physical abilities, a mental exercise to help promote mental health and well-being and allow their bodies to be less effected by the force of gravity, which allows them to move without pain or be uncomfortable in space. The pool allows individuals to experience a sense of autonomy and they are in control of their movements. This program funds equipment used in the pool.
