How it works

By volunteering at the pool you will earn credits for every volunteer hour you work. 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. You can also use these volunteer hours towards your high school volunteer requirements.
