Removing Barriers

Broad Reach Foundation engages at-risk youth in the sport, science and mastery of sailing with the objective of creating a greater social belonging, protection of the environment and learning through innovative nautical programming and civic engagement.

Since 1998, the Broad Reach Foundation for Youth Leaders has provided sailing and nautical based programs to empower thousands of youth from disadvantaged circumstances: homeless shelters, vulnerable neighbourhoods, young offender programs, and drop-in centres. They bear the stigma and negative perceptions that these hard realities create.

 

For many of these youth, this could be the end. But their reach is greater than they think. Broad Reach offers them a new beginning, engaging them in year round experiential education and after school recreational activities focused on:

 

• Physical exercise, discipline and stamina 

• Mental agility, concentration and focus 

• Social interaction and teamwork 

• Confidence and self-esteem 

 

From that new beginning will come the much-needed future carpenters, artists, plumbers and lawyers, innovators and change agents, which our society needs to prosper.
