Friends of Huntington Beach Junior Lifeguards 
“Were Parents of Junior Guards Just Like You!" 


Friends of the Junior Lifeguards is a non-profit 501c3 corporation incorporated in the State of California. The foundation serves as the non-profit fund-raising auxiliary of the Huntington Beach Junior Lifeguards.

Since the foundation was incorporated in 2000, it raised over $200,000 in donations to support the program and its activities.

A seven-member Board of Directors governs the foundation. The members are from the community who volunteer their time and energy to support the junior lifeguard program.


Previous major campaign efforts, by the foundation, included an annual pancake breakfast and solicitations from local businesses. Mr. Aaron Pai, owner of Huntington Beach Surf and Sport, and the Assistance League of Huntington Beach have been major contributors to the Huntington Beach Junior Lifeguard Program.
