Sail2Change is a nonprofit organization, aspiring to improve community equity by empowering our youth through access, opportunity, authentic relationships, and alternative outdoor education.
We believe that every child has the potential to succeed given the appropriate environment and opportunity.
We provide tools for personal growth while creating an understanding of the natural world complexities through responsible recreation.
Our vision is to provide a meaningful opportunity to learn new skills, build self-confidence, and become a successful and conscientious member of society.
WHOM WE SERVE
Our program is geared towards youth in 10th to 12th grade who are less likely to transition into adulthood and achieve economic self-sufficiency.
We offer support to students with emotional and behavioral complications, truancy, low-academic performance, and students experiencing a disconnection from the traditional school environment. Sail2Change is dedicated to providing a compassionate outlet for positive decision-making, ensuring future success to those involved.
