A lot of people ask us what we need, and the answer is always the same:
We need people!
The Boathouse is an all-volunteer organization and our programs work only because people commit to making them work. You don't need any training or scheduling to start, just introduce yourself any of our locations and we can put you to work right away.
Please be over 18 and know how to swim.
Active volunteers will have opportunities to advance their own paddling skills through a number of training sessions. Those who have undergone the proper instruction are encouraged to use the Boathouse's decked kayaks and take advantage of the volunteer trips throughout the season. Over time and with the proper instruction volunteers will gain the skills required to lead trips and teach classes for the public.
