Youth in this program are disengaged teenagers that have lost respect for the “traditional path.” The average GPA is a 0.6 and many youth are on the verge of expulsion of dropping out of high school.
Since the program began in 2013, SailFuture has served more than 150 at-risk high school students. 95% of our students have earned their high school diploma and/or remained enrolled in school.
Students and mentors meet twice per week for 16-weeks. After completion of the program high school students are eligible to be hired on as sailing instructors or continue as volunteers until they graduate from high school.
