Junior Instructor Program
To further the vision and mission of GBSA, junior instructors are selected based upon their personal qualities, sailing experience, and prior experience working with children. It is important that junior instructors are an upbeat, positive, and visible aspect of the GBSA experience.
Applicants for the Junior Instructor program must be models of safe behavior, energetic and fun companions for the students, and effective teachers of sailing. Applicants must be at least 15 years of age and be First Aid and CPR certified by the start of the season.
Typically, we accept 6-7 JIs each year. JIs receive a stiped of $600 as well as a full credit for their tuition to GBSA classes.
The application process for 2019 has already been completed.
