What's Included

Our Junior Instructor(JI) program is designed to get our older students who desire to become a sailing instructor in the future a taste of what it is like. Students that are accepted into this program will be required to be available to "work" all summer. JIs will spend their mornings actively teaching younger students and their afternoons being a part of one of CBC's classes for our older students. In order to be accepted as a JI candidates must have their parents fill out the Active Network application. JI candidates need to fill out CBC's employment application and submit it to the programs director. The employment application can be found at http://www.communityboating.org/employment/ Once both applications have been submitted candidates will be interviewed and the best candidates will be chosen to fill the limited number of spaces we have in the JI program.

About This Organizer

Community Boating Center's mission is to teach postive life values to youth through boating.

Our programs are designed to be a step by step process in character development, by using boating as a tool to help instill important life lessons in our students. Taught by US SAILING Certified Instructors, CBC introduces students to a safe, fun and nurturing learning environment where they can experience the value of team work in a healthy and challenging activity.

Our programs show kids how good, fun and productive life can be when everyone is caring, cooperative, rational, respectful and empathetic. Our instructors have a profound influence on these kids, and this is our goal. In many cases, we are the only positive role model our students have ever had outside of their families. CBC provides a very positive view of the world, which gives kids a new perspective of what is possible, and how to achieve it.

CBC introduces students to an environment that they have never experienced. Many of our kids have not been to the beach before coming to CBC, despite having lived, sometimes, within walking distance. This is an amazing opportunity to fill a kid with wonder and a sense of adventure.

Our students are from such varied backgrounds that virtually every kid can gain a wider perspective just by interacting with the other students. Creating such appreciation and friendships is another part of our mission.

We welcome the opportunity to introduce you to our award-winning programs.
