Our volunteer base started with seven Junior Lifeguard Instructors from Huntington Beach, CA. Little did we know the vast amount of people from other lifeguarding agencies had the same idea, so the joined us! ISLA has grown into a dynamic team of lifeguards, doctors, nurses, firefighters, paramedics, and emergency & military personnel from various agencies throughout the globe!
Our operations started in Nicaragua, and have expanded into many countries in providing aid, support, and exchange programs in an effort to raise awareness of the drowning epidemic and save lives.
