Staffing needs for Summer Programs

Sailing Instructors
Teach sailing to at-risk teens on dinghies (JY-14’s) and some keelboats. Most students have never had the opportunities that we provide. Teaching these students is challenging yet rewarding!

Support Staff
If you are not a certified sailing instructor, we still need you! You would help the instructors, work on boats, work directly with the students and help on all facets of our program. We will even teach you how to sail! Some boating experience is helpful.

Volunteer Staff
Volunteer/Intern for our summer! Don’t have a full summer free? Come out for a week or even a few days and volunteer with one of our programs.

**In some cases, staff members who come from outside the DC area may be housed on one of our boats for the summer.
