In the heart of The Bronx, New Settlement is making waves by tackling two significant challenges head-on: the lifeguard shortage and the disparities in swimming abilities among different racial and ethnic groups. Through comprehensive learn-to-swim programs and year-round lifeguard opportunities, New Settlement is transforming lives and creating a safer future for all.

Tackling the Lifeguard Shortage

New Settlement offers comprehensive learn-to-swim programs that serve as a pathway to becoming lifeguard-certified. By adhering to Red Cross standards, young people who participate in these programs develop essential water safety skills, positioning themselves for lifeguard certification not only at New Settlement but also at various facilities across the city. We're nurturing a new generation of capable lifeguards, actively working to ensure the safety of our aquatic spaces.

Moreover, New Settlement understands the importance of preparing young individuals for the more challenging NYC Lifeguard certification. Through our learn-to-swim programs, participants gain a solid foundation that equips them to handle the demanding training and requirements of becoming NYC-certified lifeguards. New Settlement's comprehensive approach is instrumental in bridging the gap and addressing the lifeguard shortage in our city.
