Proven volunteers and critical programs will be prioritized, but we’ll consider inclusion of committed newer volunteers. If funding permits, we’ll strive for additional training to grow our ranks of qualified volunteer leaders.
Please respond by May 13 at 3PM.
Please, no cancellations after May 16 at 3PM.
HarborLAB’s insurance requires program leadership by volunteers with Red Cross certification in adult and pediatric AED, CPR, and First Aid, along with a water safety class (to be offered this summer). The land-based certifications expire after two years, so if you were certified in 2017, you must renew now.
Note: Completion of a water safety class is good for life. We’ll offer that class to volunteers this summer.
Note: We have a particular need of certified volunteers for our weekday Harbor Camp and Neversink programs.
Note: HarborLAB has a limited ability to reimburse individual training sessions elsewhere, but these are more expensive and require more administrative work.
This safety training is funded by ExxonMobil as part of a community outreach effort associated with cleaning up its Newtown Creek pollution, centered in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
