The Schooba Mentor program kicked off this past Tuesday, and both students and mentors began their training for the Naui Scuba Diver Certification. Instruction for the course is being run by Ocean Horizons Scuba. All classes will consist of a classroom and pool session. Tuesday provided a basic introduction to scuba and its equipment, followed by a pool session covering basic swimming and skin diving skills and techniques. Session 1 is in the books, so grab a slice at Schmooks, your crochet hooks, that Sharper Image alarm clock that made sounds of babbling brooks, and have a looks!

The Schooba Mentor program pairs students from low-income communities with a totally awesome mentor to complete a full scuba certification course together. The student simultaneously receives free, private tutoring on the science involved in scuba diving.
Starting today, three student-mentor pairs will begin their NAUI Scuba Diver (Open Water) course. The training will be done by Ocean Horizons Scuba, and the open water dives will take place place off of Beach 8th/9th St. in Far Rockaway, Queens this summer. I’ll be posting information on our newest Schoobents individually throughout the week, so stay posted to learn more!
