MAKE A LASTING DIFFERENCE
Be a leader.  Be a lifeguard! Thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds come to the Lincoln Y for water safety education, to learn to swim, and to meet their health and wellness goals in the pool. Lifeguards are essential to ensuring a safe environment for those individuals.  Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Maintaining safe swimming conditions and watch over children, families and adults in and around our pools.
  • Creating a positive atmosphere that promotes member safety and engagement. 

 

Our Lifeguards are enthusiastic about their work because they get the opportunity to be a leader in all areas of our nonprofit mission:  youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.  Plus, they also enjoy:

  • A fun and engaging work environment where friendships are made
  • Flexible schedules including opportunities to work seasonal or year round in our indoor and outdoor pools
  • Room to grow
  • Free Y membership at all YMCA of Lincoln locations for qualified staff
  • Future employers respect the Y – build your resume
