THE STORY:

AMOUNT RAISED IN PREVIOUS ROUND: $3685

SailFuture utilizes sailing and mentorship to inspire and empower at-risk youth to make transformative life changes. We pair passionate college students and young professionals with at-risk youth and create a dynamic experience to help them form lifelong relationships. Our mentors and our students have zero prior sailing experience. They work together on 2-person boats, both scared and excited, to overcome incredible challenges like capsizing and man overboard drills. The experience levels the playing field and allows students to feel like equals alongside their older "mentor." Of our youth currently enrolled in highschool, all have below a 1.5 GPA, exhibit chronic behavioral challenges, and have significant family trauma at home. At SailFuture, they complete our innovative sailing curriculum that ties the fundamentals of sailing to key life lessons related to goal-setting, conflict resolution, and resilience. Their mentor is also their personal tutor and creates an individualized academic plan that becomes a student's 'chart' to graduation. The end goal of our program is for all of our students to graduate high school, develop confidence in themselves, develop resilience and grit, and to create a family of supporters for our students to lean on now and in the future. Our 2014 CGI U Commitment to Action is to take the proven model we have built and refined and expand our impact by establishing a second program. Your investment will support the purchase of critical equipment (sailboats, life jackets, coaching, and safety materials) to establish a second SailFuture program.
