We’re a youth development charity offering life-changing experiences to disadvantaged young people. Our aim is to equip young people with the skills & confidence needed to create better outcomes for themselves & their communities, via our 3-voyage programme of Exploration, Empowerment & Leadership.
Being financially disadvantaged can be a huge barrier to positive health & wellbeing. As well as struggling financially, our beneficiaries are facing other challenges including learning, mental or physical disabilities; behavioural or social difficulties; caring responsibilites; ethnically diverse backgrounds; not in employment, education or training, or are involved with the police. These issues can have a negative impact on confidence, self-worth & the ability to realise their true potential.
Our 3-voyage programme of Exploration, Empowerment & Leadership combines outdoor learning with personal development, social development, & practical life skills. It supports young people on their transition into adulthood & equips them with skills & resilience which will sustain them throughout their lives. It offers pathways into volunteering, as well as careers in the maritime & ocean environment. Ultimately it develops future leaders, & mature & responsible contributors to society.
