Woodland Hills, CA – Los Angeles based Golden State Lifeguards has announced plans to form a nonprofit to bolster efforts in lifeguard training, purchasing equipment and community outreach focusing on drowning prevention. Additionally, the nonprofit will seek to provide free swim lessons to underprivileged children in the San Fernando Valley.

“This is something that has been on the minds of our staff for a great deal of time and something that will allow us to continue doing what we do to empower the community we serve”, says Ed Castillo, Chief of Lifeguard Operations.

The nonprofit will also focus on training interested candidates for the job of pool and ocean lifeguard.

“With such a severe national lifeguard shortage, the nonprofit aims to produce highly trained lifeguards to fill vacancies all over the United States”, says Castillo. “This training will also allow us to provide ocean lifeguards to many unprotected beaches in southern and central California”.

The nonprofit will be filed with the State of California and the Internal Revenue Service in late fall of 2017. Fundraising will commence upon the completion of formation.
