The Kinesiology Club, the life saving class and Homeboy Industries went to Marina del Rey to learn about being a life guard on Saturday.
Kinesiology professor Eldin Onsgard set up the trip so students can experience a different lifestyle and a different approach to fitness.
They were given the oppurtunity to learn about being life guards on the bay watch boat, from the water to the beach.
The Los Angeles Country Fire Department Life Guard division talked to those in attendance about a career as a life guard.
“The Los Angeles County Fire Department Life Guard Division are the highest paid life guard in the nation,” Onsgard said.
The event focused on safety and showed students what being a life guard is all about.
“We can come back into our own community and do these kinds of jobs,” Onsgard said.
Those in attendance also had the opportunity to play beach games, Kayak and surf.
