Summer Employment

We have 8 beaches throughout the city, a robust sailing program, two waterparks, and the nation’s first freshwater natural filtration pool facility; Webber Natural Pool. We have employment opportunities near every section of the City; N, NE, S, and SW. In order to meet the need, we are recruiting potential applicants. We hire Lifeguards, Waterpark Attendants, and Sailors to operate our Aquatic system.

The biggest challenge is having enough certified Lifeguards. Becoming an American Red Cross certified Lifeguard takes a little planning and being connected to course being run throughout the metro. We can help connect interested people to classes being offered.
