The Benjo Apprenticeship Program provides summer-long paid apprenticeships to teenage sailors.  Benjo Apprentices have the opportunity to work and learn at a sailing center for an entire summer.  Apprentices are expected to work at the school while learning sailing, sailing instruction, small boat handling, boat repair and maintenance, event planning, and outdoor program management.   Currently, Benjo Apprentices are chosen strictly by the LLBF Board of Directors and are given only when candidates are identified through a referring partner, which is currently the Boy's and Girls Club of Burlington, Vermont.
