Each year we look for volunteers to send to the beaches we manage. Volunteers must be at least American Red Cross First Responders or Emergency Medical Technicians, and serve as lifeguards in the United States. As we grow we want to continue to expand the range of volunteers we bring to include nurses and doctors for on site medical facilities, but are currently in the process of working the logistics out with various governments.

Typically we select volunteers through a scholarship and essay program, and provide each with room and board, airfare, equipment, and a regional tour of the area they are sent to. For all of this we expect 40 hours of volunteer work during the peak days of their stay. It is our goal to not only supply the vital need but to build lasting relationships with the people in the regions we service.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please let us know. We will be using this website to announce the time frames and to enable those interested to download an application.
