Volunteer

Give Back to the Adult Program!

Our volunteers are what keeps Community Boating afloat! In fact, at some point a member of our Volunteer Faculty likely taught one of your classes. Without volunteer instructors and people willing to take newcomers out on training sails, there wouldn’t be much of a community in Community Boating. CBI offers many different opportunities to get involved. If you’d like to become an active volunteer, the best place to start is by joining our Volunteer Faculty.

Volunteer Opportunities

Teaching Opportunities

Teaching is the best way to get involved with Community Boating, meet new people, and improve your own sailing skills. Without volunteer instructors and people willing to take newcomers out on training sails, there wouldn’t be much of a community in Community Boating. To find the position best suited for you, visit our Volunteer Faculty page.

Work Parties

Interested in something more communal? Join one of the seasonal work parties! They focus on hauling, maintaining, and launching our fleet in the fall, winter, and spring respectively.

Fleet and Facility

This is a great chance for members good with their hands to get involved. With our large fleet of Mercuries, there’s always some work to do. Visit our Support Us page to get started.

Community Building

Active volunteers may also be asked to represent CBI at various community events, such as open houses and boat shows. If you would be interested in representing CBI at an event, contact [email protected]  with “Event Volunteering” in the subject line.

Corporation

If you are already a volunteer and are looking to be even more involved, join our corporation and become a part of CBI’s organizing body. This is a great chance to support CBI through preserving its heritage for future generations.

Other Opportunities
