BE A LEADER. BE A LIFEGUARD. 

 

 
As a leader in swim and water safety instruction, the YMCA strives for excellence in all our aquatics programs. YMCA lifeguards are crucial members of the YMCA team, dedicated to creating safe, fun environments for people of all ages to enjoy the water.
 
YMCA lifeguards must be:
 
  • 15 years of age or older
  • Certified by the YMCA or the American Red Cross
  • Certified in CPR-PR/AED, Oxygen Administration, and Standard First Aid
  • Able to pass a swim skills test and written test
  • Excellent communication and member service skills are also required.
 
Hours and schedules vary with day, evening, or weekend shifts. YMCA lifeguards work at four Greater Valley YMCA branches and at outdoor pools throughout the Lehigh Valley Area.  Check out the job description. 
 
The YMCA is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate in recruitment, hiring or other terms or conditions of employment on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, age or any other status protected by law.

Financial Assistance

 

Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. At The Y, no child, family or adult is turned away due to an inability to pay.

 

Financial assistance awards are assessed on a case by case basis during a one-on-one, confidential session with a staff member. Those interested in applying for our financial assistance program are encouraged to download this form, or stop in to any of our branches to learn more and pick up an application.
