Teach Kids To Surf

May 10th, 2013

Boarding House Mentors is a non-profit organization that transforms the lives of under-served youth by introducing them to the exhilaration of board sports. We provide a safe and supportive community environment which promotes positive self-image, inspires self-confidence, fosters healthy lifestyles, and encourages respect and awareness for the environment. BHM is a all-volunteer organization!

What We Do:
Pass The Stoke Surf Community – Youth learn to surf in a fun, supportive environment under the supervision of experienced surfers and volunteers who share the positive impact that surfing had on their lives.

Our volunteers are the heart and soul of our BHM community because of the relationships that they develop with our youth. No community is built in a day and nobody learns to surf the first time out. That is why we ask our volunteers to commit to helping at each session. Developing consistency and building relationships between our youth and volunteers has been the unique key to the success of BHM.

Types of Volunteers:

Surf Instructors – BHM trains our volunteers to become surf instructors. Surf experience is not required but ocean experience is preferred. Our instructors help our participants handle the surfboards, give instructions and assure safety in the water at all times.

Beach Volunteers – BHM beach volunteers share their enthusiasm with our young surfers in many ways. They register participants, manage the equipment, serve our delicious lunches, cheer on our young surfers, coordinate beach activities, take photos and videos and assure beach safety at all times.

Volunteer from Home: Volunteer as a Grantwritter, Web Designer, Graphic Designer, Marketing Director, or Public Relations Director
