You Can Get Involved

Your contribution helps!

We may sail in the summer, but we operate year-round. We can only do this with the dedicated support of our volunteers. If you have a few hours a week to spare or even just a day or two, we would love to hear from you!

Whatever your skills or interests, we can find a way to match them up with the vital work that keeps this program running.


One or two day opportunities

During the winter months we hold work parties to do ship maintenance and prepare them for the winter season. We are always in need of another set of hands!

We are in need of volunteers to help with a variety of office tasks. This is ideal for someone who is looking for a short term commitment or would like to come in on an on-call, variable basis.

Do you have experience in graphic or merchandise design? We are looking for someone who can offer us advice on clothing design, purchasing and product selection for our Boatique.


Medium to long term opportunities

Each fall we hold two large fundraising events, a Charity Golf Tournament and a Silent Auction. The proceeds raised directly fund our bursary program which enables young people of limited financial means to participate in our programs. We are in need of volunteers to help to solicit prizes for the Golf Tournament raffle, and items for the Silent Auction.The position requires no experience, just a desire to help and someone who likes to chat on the phone!

  • We would like to know who you are, just so we can put a name to a face!
  • We will only use your e-mail address to contact you about volunteer work.
  • Just so we can quickly see if we currently need your help!
