Rainier Valley Rowing is currently recruiting for our second year of programming which will begin in August of this year. RVR serves teens entering grades 8-12 with a school-year-round after-school program (M-F 4-6pm). We use rowing as a vehicle for teaching healthy living and life skills in a program that also offers positive peer community, mentorship, and ongoing opportunities to South Seattle teens. This is an access-based program that aims to eliminate barriers our young people have to accessing community and recreational resources. To do this we also provide swimming lessons, transportation to/from South Seattle community centers, daily snacks, all needed clothes/equipment, and all fees are sliding scale with no one being turned away for lack of funds.
If you are a parent, teacher, or student who is interested in learning more, please contact Rainier Valley Rowing at online at www.RainierValleyRowing.org or call: (206) 434-9971.
