Volunteer Spotlight

Summer will be here before you know it! There are a couple of unique volunteer opportunities for youth during the summer months.

  • Teen Leadership Training - The TLT program gives teenagers the opportunity have fun during the summer while learning valuable skills for the employment world. Teens volunteer at several youth summer camps and programs throughout Mesa, assisting with organizing group games, craft projects, swimming trips and much more! Volunteers learn to function with a "work" schedule and dress code.  For more information, contact Beverlee Nielsen at 480-644-4345 or beverlee.nielsen@mesaaz.gov.
  • Junior Guard Program - The Jr. Lifeguard program helps kids build a foundation of knowledge, attitude, and skills that are needed to be a responsible volunteer and future lifeguard. Participants learn skills such as swimming, leadership, rescue response, drowning prevention, professionalism, and volunteerism. Jr. Lifeguard volunteers take an orientation class and then begin assisting the lifeguard staff with programs such as: learn-to-swim lessons, special events, competitive meets, and public swimming. The Junior Lifeguard program qualifies for HONOR FOR EXCELLENCE IN SERVICE LEARNING for Mesa Public Schools high school students. The Junior Lifeguard program is designed for youth ages 13-16.
