Be a part of something bigger than yourself by becoming an American Red Cross certified lifeguard.  Whether you are a high school or college student interested in that first job, a stay-at-home parent looking for a bit of extra income or an active retiree wanting to stay engaged, life-guarding may be the best job you’ll every have.  The hours are flexible to suit your schedule and you can know each day that the time you spent at work made a big difference in your community.  The skills you learn can help save a life and you’ll work I a profession where staying fit and active is just part of the job.  We have sour sessions of Lifeguard Training to choose from and scholarships are available.
