Now Hiring Life Guards & Swim Instructors

Friends is hiring life guards and swim instructors.   Positions include paid training / certification.

Imagine growing up on an island with the beautiful warm Caribbean Sea sparkling all around you. Each day new discoveries await as you dive into the crystal blue sea! You are confident that you have the skills you need to navigate the water safely. You take opportunities to go out on boats, snorkel, and scuba dive. You set your sights on a career in the maritime industry as you develop a deep appreciation for marine preservation and more.

Virgin Islands National Park and the Friends of Virgin Islands National Park have offered free swim lessons to St. John youth during the summer months in the park for more than a decade! Our ‘Learn to Swim’ program is designed after the American Red Cross Water Safety Course and includes beginner to advance instruction levels.  The Friends sponsors the training and employment of instructors and life guards.

Join us at a Saturday Open House!  Meet the Instructors, Get Your Skills Assessed, Mini-Lesson, and Water Safety!

Information on swim lessons for Summer of 2022 will be available shortly.
