As an example of that support, the Young Fellows Club made their most recent donation to the Learn to Swim at School program. This is a project that the Young Fellows have been supporting over the past 26 years.

To date the Young Fellows have donated $147,000 to have over 5,000 swimming lessons taught to Grade 3 and 5 students in Weyburn. The learn-to-swim at school program is a Red Cross-recognized course that gives all its participants an opportunity to learn a valuable life skill.

The Young Fellows Club of Weyburn is a local service club that puts all its proceeds back into the local community. Over the years the Young Fellows have supported some major local community projects, such as the Family Place with donations totaling over $100,000, the Triple "C" Centre (now the Cugnet Centre) with a $100,000 donation and $300,000 to Don Mitchell Memorial Playground, just to name a few.

Since the inception of the club in 1922, the Young Fellows Club of Weyburn has donated over $2.5 million back into the community of Weyburn.
