Certs for Service is a new program at NORDC that allows qualified candidates to earn a lifeguard certification in exchange for only 24 non-consecutive, volunteer hours at a NORDC Outdoor program, particularly Saturday open canoeing. Volunteers interested in assisting with canoeing, but who are not interested in becoming lifeguard certified, are also welcome. E-mail smburton@nola.gov for more information; applications are due by August 8, 2016.
