Be a leader. Be a lifeguard! Millions of people of all ages and backgrounds come to the Y for water safety education, to learn to swim, and to meet their health and wellness goals in the pool. Lifeguards are essential to ensuring a safe environment for those millions of individuals.
Lifeguards maintain safe swimming conditions in and around the pool and create a positive atmosphere that promotes member safety and engagement. Their presence allows us to offer life-changing programs in the areas of youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. When we do this effectively, we deliver on our cause as a nonprofit; strengthening community.
