Attention aspiring lifeguards!

Vaughan now conducting wet interviews for lifeguard and instructor positions

Last week, the Recreation and Culture department’s aquatic team, in partnership with other York Region municipalities, hosted #YRACspringthing2015 at the Vellore Village Community Centre. More than 150 lifeguards, instructors and aquatic staff from municipalities across the GTA and beyond participated in wet and dry professional development workshops.
