Adult Program Employment Opportunities

At Courageous we are committed to making the highest quality sailing education accessible to the community. We rely on instructors who are both great sailors and great teachers. If you have taught sailing before, or have wanted to, we want to hear from you!
Adult Program Instructor positions are typically part-time, with most classes running on the weekends and weekday evenings, so are often a great fit for those with "real jobs" who want to do something totally different in their spare time.  Some full time instructor positions are also available.
