The Tender Bridge connects at-risk kids from East Baltimore with activities designed to build character and self-esteem. In summer, our boys (ages 13 to 19) learn to sail their own boats at the Baltimore County Sailing Center in Essex. Sailing takes place on Thursday nights from 5:30 to 8 (pick-ups begin around 4:30.) We are looking for volunteers to transport young men from the area around Patterson Park, deliver them to the Sailing Center, and spend some time on the water with them. We sail easy-to-operate 2-man boats and nearly all of our boys are already proficient with rigging and sailing their boats. SAILING EXPERIENCE IS NOT REQUIRED and the bonus for volunteers is that they can learn to sail, too!
