Your assistance is being requested to post this information in your career service offices for students who are receiving or hold a current American Red Cross Lifeguard Training Certificate and would be interested in seasonal employment.
Lifeguards make a major impact on the safety of Pennsylvania’s citizens and therefore need to be well prepared, serious, and capable of carrying out all the responsibilities of a state park lifeguard.

Lifeguards also inspect the condition of buoys, floats, ropes, first aid equipment and supplies, and other safety equipment to ensure that they are in proper operating condition. They inspect swimming areas to ensure they are safe for public use and perform incidental maintenance and custodial duties at a swimming area to ensure it is safe for public use.
The job requirements for the Lifeguard titles are as follows: possession of a valid American Red Cross Lifeguard Training Certificate; or a valid YMCA Lifeguard Training Certificate; and possession of a valid American Red Cross Community First Aid and Safety Certificate; or any combination of valid certificates in standard first aid, and adult, child, and infant CPR. In addition, certain positions as a Lake Erie Lifeguard require possession of a valid driver’s license. Please read the test announcement for a complete listing of all job requirements.

If you are a student or graduate interested in working toward social justice, especially in the realm of health care policy and advocacy, I hope you will consider this opportunity.

Each year, the Villers Fellow works in our health policy department and assists our organization's efforts to improve access to health coverage for all Americans, especially for low-income and other vulnerable communities. Specifically, the Villers Fellow will conduct research on a range of health care policy issues, and write and contribute to publications that are relevant to health reform implementation and other health policy issues.
In creating the fellowship, Mr. Villers aspired to develop a network of young leaders who share a passion for health care justice. The ideal candidate will demonstrate a commitment to health care justice work following their year as a fellow. Additionally, in order to encourage the development of future leaders, Villers Fellows must commit to mentoring at least one person over the course of their careers.
