Volunteer Opportunities

Receive FREE Instructor and Lifeguard training by volunteering at the pool!

By volunteering at the pool you will earn credits for every volunteer hour worked. These credits can be applied to the cost of select leadership courses required to become a Lifeguard or Swim Instructor. This means you will only be required to pay the exam and course material fees. Alternatively, volunteer hours can instead be used for High School Community Involvement Hours.
