Every community has different goals for water safety. The Lifeguard Outreach Society can send our teams of swimming and first aid instructors to volunteer in your community to meet those goals.
Our team wants to be partners in drowning prevention with your community. Local knowledge and priorities drive effective programming. Is your community interested in youth learning first aid skills or young children learning swimming skills? We work together with local community leaders prevent drownings on a community to community basis.
Our team will visit a community for 2 or 3 days to run lessons. Our team will run aquatic lessons as well as first aid lessons. Swimming survival lessons run for one and half hours per group of swimmers. We are mainly limited by water temperature. We can run multiple lesson sets during our stay to meet different age and activity groups in the community.
Our team of volunteers will arrive in your community no matter where you are located. We ask for communities to cover our travel, food, and accommodation . We are happy to camp, sleep in community centers, to be billeted, or any accommodation set up really. We are always excited to participate in community gatherings and are open to different options for feeding our team. Mainly the largest expense to the community is travel. Travel to some communities costs a tank of gas up the highway, while others require an airplane. Working together we can make sure drowning prevention lessons will happen no matter any geographic or economic limitations.
Sign your community up for swimming survival and lifesaving lessons this summer!
So many of the communities we have partnered with have living on their lakes, rivers, and oceans for thousands of years. For our trips to work we want to work with local input into the content of our lessons and to make sure that our program is relevant sustainable. Please make sure to connect with us and tell us your vision for water safety and first aid and how we can be a partner with your community.
