LIFEGUARD SCHOLARSHIP FUND
of $100,000 goal
Raised by 11 people in 19 months
Lifeguarding is an industry that requires training, certifications and safety equipment that many youth (16yrs - 23yrs) can't afford to pay . We want to help provide funding for young people when they are furthering their education and still in school. Based on where you live in the country, lifeguard training certifications costs upwards of $300 or more for a 2 year license. Lifeguarding uniforms and safety equipment cost upwards of $200 or more and some areas require a Certified Pool Operator (CPO) certificate for an additional $275. As you can see this is a lot of up-front money that many people cannot afford. Quality lifeguards play an important part of keeping our aquatic facilities and beaches safe for swimming each swim year. We need lifeguards because they Save Lives!
