Guard Aid Program

Youth Volunteer Opportunity

 

 

 On a daily basis, the Guard Aides help to provide for a safer, better supervised, outdoor recreational experience for the Junior Lifeguard Program participants. They also become role models for program participants, while they themselves gain training and experience in leadership, teamwork, aquatic safety skills, and first aid. The Junior Lifeguard Assistants are to work under the close supervision of the Junior Lifeguard Program Supervisor and report directly to an assigned Junior Lifeguard Program Instructor during the operating hours of the program. The Assistants will work with Lifeguard Staff and other Park Personnel in order to develop job skills, proper work habits, and leadership qualities through work experience.
