We make lifeguards.

If you’d like to become a lifeguard or you’re looking to renew your lifeguard certification, the JCC can help. For over 20 years, we’ve been training qualified swimmers for pool-safety supervision and water rescues with American Red Cross Lifeguard Training, including certification in First Aid, CPR, and AED (Automated External Defibrillators) use.

Come, be a water mensch!

An Osher Marin JCC lifeguard is well trained and ever vigilant.
