The Monitor Skipper program is the core of MITA’s stewardship activities. Skippers are among the most dedicated volunteers and are part of a wonderful community of stewards. Skippers primarily serve as boat drivers for scheduled monitoring runs from June to September, and may also drive for cleanups or other island work projects. Prospective skippers should have previous small powerboat handling experience and go through an apprenticeship process to be certified to use MITA 18’ Lund workboats for stewardship activities.
More information about the Monitor Skipper program and apprentice process can be found in this brochure.
Interested volunteers should fill out this survey to provide MITA staff with information about their boating experience, and can contact our Regional Stewardship Managers with any questions about the program.
