Participate in Waterproofing
Asphalt Green partners with New York City public elementary schools to offer Waterproofing.Learn More
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We partner with schools in low-income neighborhoods where a majority of students receive free or reduced-priced meals. The program runs weekly at seven sites and serves over 50 schools each year.
At the beginning [of the Waterproofing program], my son was shy near the water. He stayed in the shallow end of the pool, was scared, and didn’t know how to float. Slowly, he got better and started looking forward to going to the pool [and] beach. Now, he knows how to swim, so the ocean feels accessible to him. He’s comfortable in the pool and looks forward to water activities more than he ever has.
