Qualifying tests begin on Friday, December 1, and will be held at more than 15 pools around the city, including recreation centers and local schools. Register for a qualifying exam here.
NYC Parks Commissioner Sue Donoghue and DC 37 Executive Director Henry Garrido announced that the City has reached an agreement with the lifeguard union represented by DC 37 to raise hourly wages for seasonal lifeguards to $22.00 per hour.
Beginning summer 2024, returning seasonal lifeguards and chief lifeguards will receive a $1,000 bonus if they work through peak season.
