River Captains help train and oversee River Ambassador volunteers to educate visitors about river safety and etiquette at assigned river crossings, including the Highway 49 bridge, Bridgeport, and Purdon Crossing. River Captains are also responsible for collecting programmatic data about visitors, trash collected, and interactions. While on-the-ground duties occur on weekends, River Captains can expect to spend two hours midweek in meetings and completing administrative duties, such as data entry, scheduling, and supply restocking.

River Captains average 15 hours per week.

NOTE: River Captains must be available to work weekends during the summer starting Memorial Day weekend and ending Labor Day weekend. Please only apply if you are available to work these dates. Applicants must also be available for training in May and as needed, in addition to post-program evaluation during the first week of September. 

Compensation will be $16.50 to $18.00 per hour; this includes all training, post-program evaluations, and required meetings. Reasonable mileage and pre-approved expenses will be reimbursed. SYRCL’s part-time temporary employees are not eligible for health/vision/dental insurance benefits, paid time off, or holiday pay. 40 hours of Sick leave will be frontloaded but may not be used for the first 90 days of employment.

River Captains begin the week of May 13th.

River Ambassador training is May 16th, 2024, and the first day on the river is May 24th, 2024.
