Review for Piers Park Sailing Center Inc, East Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our boat, Averisera, is moored at one of the moorings that Piers Park provides for local boaters and visitors to Boston Harbor. We interact with the youth and folk that Piers Park serves, whenever we go down to sail in our beautiful harbor. We have met young people doing sample collections and exploration activities on the dock, and invited them onto our boat, so they can see what a cruising/sailing vessel is like. When we dinghy out to our mooring, we observe the members who use the adaptive facilities, like the lift for wheelchair-bound people. It has been a humbling and uplifting experience, sharing the harbor with the population that Piers Park serves. This is an amazing place!

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

our daily interactions coming and going from our mooring.

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

make sure it had sufficient funding to serve the maximum number of youth and folks in need of adaptive sailing equipment.

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

the impromptu nature of our interactions with people of all abilities.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

enthusiastic and committed.

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

change the world.

Ways to make it better...

more folk were able to participate. Probably a funding or budgeting constraint.

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

Funding and capacity.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
