    Support our Programs

    As a community sailing organization, Treasure Island Sailing Center provides opportunities for personal growth and environmental stewardship through the sport of sailing. The majority of our participants are underserved youth. These youths lack the financial resources needed to join a sailing program and often developmental support. TISC’s programs give these kids a pause from life’s challenges while encouraging goal setting, communication, decision-making and leadership. Sailing provides a connection to our Bay and the necessary skills to move forward into adulthood, all while having a ton of fun!

    Mission of the Treasure Island Sailing Center

    We create opportunities for people to learn and grow through sailing by providing facilities, sailing instruction, and access to the water for people of all socio-economic backgrounds, abilities and skill levels from novice to Olympian.

    Our Vision

    To provide San Francisco with a first rate community sailing center that provides universal access to and lifelong connections with the Bay.
    To serve

    ALL children in our community and to teach them more than sailing.

    Volunteering at TISC

    TISC would not be possible without the many volunteers who put their time and energy into making our facility and programs accessible for everyone in the San Francisco Bay. We provide opportunities for adults to contribute to TISC’s mission and the community through volunteerism. TISC utilizes volunteers in a variety of ways from helping with community or fundraising events and maintaining its fleet to office work and program instruction.
