    To become a Volunteer Beach Ambassador, one must first become a member of the Friends of South Walton Sea Turtles. Fee: $5. Reward: Priceless. The shirt, name tag and training materials are free with membership and VBA uniforms are sponsored by the Visit South Walton Tourist Development Council. The road to becoming a Volunteer Beach Ambassador begins with a mandatory Volunteer Beach Ambassador Training Class which lasts three hours and features instruction and education from SoWal’s Beach Operations Department, the South Walton Fire Department, South Walton Life Guards, the Walton County Sheriff’s Office, and the Friends of South Walton Sea Turtles. Information gleaned from these training sessions will prepare volunteers for their season of beach culture empowerment. Volunteers must also be a full time Walton County Citizen or a second home owner who is in the area 3+ months per year. Volunteers are required to re-certify each year.

    The TDC collects enough tax revenue to make these paid positions
