Volunteer ... be a part of the team!
Known as "America’s Volunteer Lifesavers" the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary was established by Congress in 1939 to assist the Coast Guard in promoting boating safety. It boasts more than 35,000 members from all walks of life who receive special training so that they may be a functional part of Coast Guard Forces. Auxiliarists assist the Coast Guard in non-law enforcement programs such as public education, vessel safety checks, safety patrols, search and rescue, maritime security and environmental protection and Coast Guard Academy introduction programs for youth. Auxiliarists volunteer more than 2 million hours annually to benefit other boaters and their families. Come join us.

The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is divided into Districts, Divisions and Flotilla's with the Flotilla being your local organization. If you enjoy the boating community and helping others you will find plenty to do - Boating Safety Program Instructor; Vessel Safety Examiner; Environmental Protection; Operations and search and rescue.

If you don't have the time to volunteer, there are other ways to demonstrate your commitment to boating safety. First and foremost by setting the example by wearing your PFD and being stewards of the water. Secondly, by financial contribution to help keep our programs moving. Become an associate member of the Coast Guard Auxilairy Association. You can also help promote boating safety education by posting class schedules at your place of employment or in your company newsletter. These simple things can have a positive impact upon recreational boating.

Take the first step to become a valuable member of Team Coast Guard by taking a Boating Skills and Seamanship Program or visit your local Flotilla meeting to learn first hand the benefits of joining the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary or click H E R E for more information.
