Junior Lifeguard - Training Future Lifeguards.

The Jr. Lifeguard program helps kids build a foundation of knowledge, attitude, and skills that are needed to be a responsible volunteer and future lifeguard.

Participants learn skills such as swimming, leadership, rescue response, drowning prevention, professionalism, and volunteerism.

Jr. Lifeguard volunteers take an orientation class and then begin assisting the lifeguard staff with programs such as: learn-to-swim lessons, special events, competitive meets, and public swimming.

The Junior Lifeguard program qualifies for HONOR FOR EXCELLENCE IN SERVICE LEARNING for Mesa Public Schools high school students

The Junior Lifeguard program is designed for youth ages 13-16.
