Job Description
   The Downtown Sailing Center (DSC) is an award-winning, nonprofit 501(c)(3) community sailing center offering sailing instruction and access to sailing through a variety of programming to the greater Baltimore community since 1994.
   The DSC is hiring part-time Adult Education Sailing Instructors for the 2023 season, lasting from April through October. Availability for the entire season is not required. We offer maximum flexibility in terms of amount of work desired, scheduling, and time off.

   The DSC is a certified Community Sailing Center and accredited Sailing School through US Sailing, the national governing body of sailing. US Sailing instructor certification is desired, but not required. Instructor pay ranges from $16-$22/hour depending on certifications and experience level.
   The DSC welcomes and seeks to engage all persons, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation or level of ability/disability. Discrimination or harassment will not be tolerated.
