Get Involved

Everytime you come to Courageous you are doing your part to support our programs. Whether you are a long time member or you just came down with a friend to try racing one evening, 100% of the money we take in goes toward improving access to the water for our community. There are also a number of ways to directly support Courageous through volunteering, attending events, value-in-kind gifts and donations.
 

Ways to Give

It costs approximately $650 per week per child for Courageous Sailing to operate its summer youth program. Our summer program fees have been generously underwritten by donors including the City of Boston, the business community, charitable foundations, our adult student/members, and individual participants like yourselves.

Volunteer

We welcome corporate and individual volunteers to join us serving the community. In Spring and Fall, the busiest times, volunteer parties will help maintain our fleet and boathouse. Throughout the whole year, volunteers can join us helping with events and other projects. You can also adopt a boat or serve as a guest coach. Contact Lindsey O’Connell, our volunteer coordinator, to learn about upcoming opportunities.
