Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
"The purpose of the Auxiliary is to assist the Coast Guard:
(1) To promote safety and to effect rescues on and over the high seas and on navigable waters;
(2) To promote efficiency in the operation of motorboats and yachts;
(3) To foster a wider knowledge of, and better compliance with, the laws, rules, and regulations governing the operation of motorboats and yachts;
(40 To facilitate other operations of the Coast Guard."
Since its creation by Congress in 1939, the U. S. Coast Guard Auxiliary (the Auxiliary) has served as the civilian, non-military component of the Coast Guard. Today, the 30,000 volunteer men and women of the Auxiliary are active on the waterways and classrooms in over 2,000 cities and towns across the nation.
Each year, Auxiliarists save almost 500 lives, assist some 15,000 boaters in distress, conduct more than 150,000 courtesy safety examinations of recreational vessels, and teach over 500,000 students in boating and water safety courses. The results of these efforts saves taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars every year.
