WANT TO SAIL THIS SUMMER? What better way to spend the summer than near or on the water in beautiful LaSalle Park, putting smiles on the faces of sailors who live with a range of disabilities.
Burlington Able Sail provides sailing and sail training opportunities to people living with a wide variety of disabilities, in an accessible environment using safe, purpose-built equipment and boats. Volunteers are needed to work with paid staff, usually for a four-hour period between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays, from late June to August. Depending on preferences and abilities, volunteers work with paid staff to welcome clients, coordinate dock activities, help transfers from wheelchairs into boats, act as companion sailors, and drive or observe on coach/safety boats. No experience is necessary. Training will be provided.
If interested, please contact David Groves at firstname.lastname@example.org or 905-520-3847 (voice or text).
Able Sail is also looking for two additional youth employees (grandchildren, etc), preferably with sailing or boating experience, 15 years and older, and for additional clients — individuals living with disabilities — who are interested in getting out on the water.
