Who We Are

WHO ARE WE

out of the Metro Vancouver area. Since 2003 the VLA has mentored over

1000 youth through their indoor Junior Lifeguard Clubs and outdoor Beach

and promote water safety education in the community, including providing

volunteer lifeguards and first aid opportunities for major public events.
