Anyone can vote in the BoatUS Foundation's Teen's Afloat Program that helps keep teens safe by offering discounted vest-style life jackets — at just $5 — to non-profit organizations providing on-the-water educational programming for young adults. Twenty-two local non-profit groups, from summer camps and sailing clubs to YMCA and Scout groups, are looking to keep teens safe on the water.
"Our hope is that we can help these groups get access to discounted life jackets and also rally community support for their programs," BoatUS Foundation program manager Alanna Keating said.
