Our Volunteers take great pride in being part of a successful and well respected program. We have very dedicated and passionate Instructors that have served the program for over 30 years. Those Instructors feel that they are truly held at a higher standard as boating safety enthusiasts. Instructors must maintain a very high ethical standard in the boating field and in the classroom to be role models and mentors to young boaters. Being a good role model means protecting the integrity of the program. Hundreds of dedicated Volunteers have given of themselves to keep recreational boating a safe and enjoyable activity.
