Broadreach is a leader in experiential programs abroad for middle school through college aged students. Over the past twenty five years, more than 17,000 students have travelled with Broadreach to over 40 countries. Our mission is to challenge students to broaden their perspectives through new experiences and environments, to inspire them to develop lifelong skills, to discover and explore their passions, and to empower them to reach beyond self-imposed limitations and take charge of their future. Broadreach is an IYT (International Yacht Training) partner school that offers courses from “Introduction to Yachting” to “Flotilla Skipper”. First Mates lead summer live-aboard sailing programs in the Caribbean alongside a skipper/sailing instructor. First mates assist with sailing instruction, facilitate positive group dynamics, lead games, assist students with cooking and cleaning duties along with fostering personal growth and leadership skills in our students. Our staff prioritize safety and are energetic role models who excel in building meaningful relationships with their students. Leading a Broadreach program is a fun, rewarding, and demanding position. Broadreach maintains a small group size of 12 students or less led by two instructors. Programs can be challenging for students and instructors, which makes a positive demeanor essential. Our strongest instructors are flexible, team players who excel in quickly changing scenarios, while maintaining a supportive, fun and cohesive community. Contracts range from four to eight weeks in length from early June through mid-August.
