The Connect Mobile Class of 2018 graduated 19 young professionals from its latest class. Their six month journey took them into the community and practicing teambuilding skills ahead of their adoption of expanding the S.W.I.M. program for Mobile Baykeeper. The class project aims to raise enough funds as well as train individuals to do water quality testing for underserved areas in the Mobile Bay area. With a January 2019 launch date, the team will present their efforts to engage people on both sides of the Bay to get them involved in making the waters safe and swimmable by more of our area’s population.
