Great Job

Lifeguards are always in demand, now more than ever with room to grow. Pools are constantly hiring and even paying for recertifications.

Stay Fit
All Year

Lifeguarding requires you to be in good physical shape. Some places allow you to use their gyms, pool, and other facilities.


Many lifeguard positions are part-time and work around your schedule for extra income. Do meaningful work while having time for school and a social life. 

People Look
Up To You

People will see you as a role model and will look up at you sitting in your chair with the best view of the pool.

It's Very

It’s a lifeguard's duty to keep everyone in the pool area safe. This big responsibility is a great feeling. You also make friends for life.
