Through experiential learning and skills development we build confidence, strength, and leadership in our ship's crew. The unique shipboard environment we provide forges friendships, teamwork, and a sense of responsibility to the community. Our sail training programs broaden horizons and inspire our youth to be a positive force in the world.
