Through a partnership with the West Cook YMCA, the PEHS Department of Physical Education and Proviso Partners for Health (PP4H), this 28 hour lifeguard training was offered to PEHS students during physical education classes in spring of 2017. On May 5, 2017, 11 students completed the YMCA Lifeguard Certification.
The partnership is expected to continue with lifeguard training and be expanded as the YMCA staff will assist with aquatic certification of PEHS faculty, and also offer aquatic activities in the PEHS pool after school and weekends. This partnership will expand physical activity and employment opportunities for not only PEHS students but also the larger Proviso community.
