The mission of the Silver Strand Junior Lifeguard program is to provide quality water safety instruction.

The Junior Lifeguard program introduces young people to safe marine and aquatic recreational opportunities. Further, the program is designed to improve young people’s physical conditioning, their understanding and respect for the environment, and their respect for themselves, their parents, and their peers.

The mission is accomplished with activities including instruction and practice in open water swimming, paddle boarding, body surfing, surfing, kayaking, and self rescue. Respect for the environment is increased by the understanding gained with daily physical contact with the environment and through lecture and discussion of pertinent marine and aquatic topics. The students gain respect for themselves through personal progress and accomplishments achieved while participating in the Silver Strand Junior Lifeguard Program. Respect for others is increased by contact with compassionate instructors and by working with other students in a team building environment.
