Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering with Richmond's Aquatic Services is a great way to get involved in the community. Volunteering also:

  • develops your interpersonal, organizational and leadership skills
  • gains you experience in lifeguarding and instructing 
  • introduces you to new friends 
  • includes lots of fun!

Richmond's Aquatic Services provides you with valuable and relevant experience directly applicable to the responsibilities of a Lifeguard Instructor. Many of the Lifeguard Instructors hired in Richmond are selected as successful candidates from their skills and experiences gained from volunteering.

Volunteer experiences can include assisting or participating:

  • with swim lessons
  • with special needs swim lessons
  • in staff in-service training sessions (e.g., acting as a victim in an emergency)
  • in shadow guarding
  • with birthday parties
  • with aquasize classes
  • with the planning and/or implementation of special events
  • in the fitness centre
