The most fun and rewarding volunteer opportunity around!

Commit to volunteer with NORD Outdoors for six Saturdays, and qualify for a free lifeguard certification course, a NORD Outdoors t-shirt, and an invitation to NORD's annual Volunteer Appreciation Event.

Also, get a $500 TAX DEDUCTION when you complete 30 or more volunteer hours in a calendar year with NORD!

Certs for Service is a program at NORD that allows qualified candidates to earn a lifeguard certification in exchange for only six Saturday shifts (4 hours each) at our free canoeing program. 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 July 28, 2017. Must be available to volunteer on Saturdays until Nov. 11.
