We are an all-volunteer academy and always need volunteers who are free to give some time and help expand our efforts to offer sailing classes to youth – no experience necessary (and you don’t have to teach). We needs a lot of support to ensure this is safe and fun for our kids: provide snacks, man chase boats, maintenance on boats, leadership training, even ideas to make this opportunity more fulfilling and fun, etc. We can use your help whatever you offer!
If you want to be involved in this important mission contact Chuck Emrich: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 859-270-2199.
