Isolated communities do not have easy access to countless public health services which exist in urban areas. The lifeguard Outreach Society (LGOS) will form a team of professionals to travel to one or more partner communities to offer programming, specialized training and services. Communities choose what services they are interested and help us adapt them to meet local needs to support their unique vision for public health. For each focus area we work closely with an implementation partner organization to deliver underwritten programming to isolated communities. Every community is unique and has different goals for us to meet. On a community-to-community and nation-to-nation basis we will work with our partner communities to create a unique collection of training our team will provide during the late Spring and Summer seasons.

let's work together

Mental Health

We offer psychological health training to isolated communities to educate them about mental health, responding during a crisis and ending the issues surrounding stigma within mental wellness. Many communities we work with experience mental health issues, substance abuse or suicide epidemics. The volunteers and staff who offer this training are certified instructors though the Red Cross.

Life Skills

We partner with the Red Cross and Right To Play to help youth build upon and develop life skills. This is done in a holistic way providing youth with a sense of mental, physical and emotional wellbeing. They gain confidence while meeting sustainable goals achieved through community involvement and knowledge-keeping.
