Sponsor a Lifeguard – Help Orangeburg Build the Next Generation of Community Leaders

Published On: June 8, 2022Categories: Blog, News, Orangeburg County YMCA:

Help us build the next generation of leaders in Orangeburg County.

Our goal at the Orangeburg County YMCA is to train, certify and hire 50 new lifeguards and swim instructors this Fall. Please don’t let cost be a barrier to those willing to serve our community. A pledge of $225 will cover the cost of our Red Cross Lifeguard Certification Course.
