We have many Junior Members who volunteer their time during our summer JP hours, as well as parents who become involved as volunteers. Volunteers have always been an essential part of Community Boating, and without them our programs would not be what they are today!
While we volunteering during Junior Program hours to Junior Program members, we strongly encourage parents to become involved in other ways:
- Join CBI’s governing corporation and/or board
- Assist on one or more committees such as strategic planning, event planning, fundraising, etc.
- Become an Adult Member and join our volunteer faculty
- Fall, Winter, and Spring fleet maintenance events (a.k.a. work parties)
Instructors In Training
Instructors-In-Training (IITs) are a crucial part of CBI’s Junior Program. These volunteer leaders assist our staff with everything from launching boats on the front of the dock to shadowing classes, planning events, and teaching novice sailors! Junior members 12 or older with at least their yellow rating can become an IIT. Dedicated yellow rated sailors younger than 12 can volunteer with permission from our IIT Coordinator.
