Juneau Youth Sailing is the capital city's volunteer, non-profit youth sailing program (school). We offer 4-day classes in summer for ages 12 to 17, for all experience levels. Classes take place in the Juneau Yacht Club thanks to their kind donation of teaching space to JYS (JYC and JYS are separate organizations). We are also supported by the CBJ Youth Activities Grant, Douglas-Dornan Foundation, and more. Use this website to learn about our program and register for classes.

Full scholarships are available, just ask!

JYS classes take place on the ancestral lands of the Aakʼw Ḵwáan, and on the ancestral waters of the Áak'w Kwáan and T'aaku Kwáan. We learn to set sails in what has been and still is Lingít Aaní. Gunalchéesh.
