We have many Junior Members who volunteer their 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 don’t allow adult volunteers during our Junior Program, we do encourage parents to become involved in other ways:
- Fall, Winter, and Spring fleet maintenance events (a.k.a. work parties)
- 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
Instructors In Training
Instructors-In-Training (IITs) are an essential 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 Priebatsch IIT Coordinator.
IITs can help out in a variety of ways, and earn volunteer hours while doing so:
