True to its motto "Sailing for All" Community Boating provides sailing experiences in the heart of Boston, MA. Although adult programs are the back bone to the operation, it is the Junior or youth program that sets this organization apart. Since it's inception, children from the ages of 11 to 17 can sail all summer for just $1.00! How far might your contirbution to CBI go in extending a healthy outdoor activity for city youth?

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the many people, young and old who pass through their doors with an interest of learning something new. The professionalism of the staff, the affordability and accessibility of the sailing programs set them apart. Every Bostonian should know of this gem!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

work a bit harder to market the program. As a not-for profit, marketing dollars are tight, but truly this gem of a place could serve a greater number of children providing healthy alternatives to some idle sedantry diversions of a younger generation.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

growing up in this non-profit among a diverse group of children from the greater Boston area and making life long friends that remain among my closest acquaintances 35 years later.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Endow the junior program primarily but also improve some of the adult programs as well.

Ways to make it better...

I never had to move away from Boston:-(

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Funding and maintainting the resources to promote and operate the program to benefit the greatest number of urban youth.

One thing I'd also say is that...

We all benefit from engaging youth in meaningful activity and Community Boating excels in providing that activity.

Community Boating is a greatplace for adults to learn how to sail, windsurf or kayak on the Charles River in Boston. Adults purchase a 30 day membership which includes instruction and boat usage, and that funding allows CBI to run their Junior Program where kids from 10 to 17 learn to sail for $1.00 per summer. It's a great program.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

keeping urban kids off the streets and into boats.
