Join The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary

The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary was created by Congress in 1939. It is the civilian volunteer component of the U.S. Coast Guard and does not participate in direct law enforcement activities. There are over 30,000 active men and women in the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary conducting surface operations and air patrols, vessel safety examinations and teaching safe boating classes across the country.

On average, people just like you, in the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary save nearly 500 lives a year, assist 15,000 boaters in distress, conduct upward of 150,000 vessel safety checks and graduate nearly 500,000 students from their safe boating classes.  Hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars are saved because of this voluntary service.

If you decide to join the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, you can enhance your seamanship abilities, learn to teach, acquire new leadership skills, provide a valuable service to the boating community, save lives, serve your country, work with the U.S. Coast Guard ashore, afloat or in the air and make new friendships that will last a lifetime.

To become a member of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary you must be a citizen of the United States, 17 years of age or older, and be willing to adhere to the Core Values of the U.S. Coast Guard: "Honor, Respect & Devotion to Duty"
