Junior Lifeguard Program

Junior Lifeguarding is a mentoring program that introduces students to the skills needed to become future lifeguards. Upon admittance into the program students are partnered with a WMFC Lifeguard who takes the role as their mentor. Lifeguard mentors work side by side with Junior Lifeguards throughout the summer teaching them lifeguard and leadership skills.

The Junior Lifeguard (JL) Mentoring Program helps prepare students for the Red Cross Lifeguard Certification Course. While in the WMFC Junior Lifeguarding Program students practice many of the lifeguarding skills that are required to pass the Lifeguard Certification Test. Students interested in the program are required to go through a selection process which includes filling out an application and completing an interview. Students must also be able to perform advanced swimming skills by completing a 200 yd. swim (without stopping) prior to applying for the program.

Space in the JL Mentoring Program is very limited. Preference is given to those students who have completed 7th grade, exhibit positive leadership skills and are good role models.

Students interested in being considered for the WMFC Junior Lifeguard Program should contact Renee Allen by May 1st at (989) 832-3256 or email Renee at allenr@wmfc.org for more information. Deadline for consideration into the program is May 1st.
