VISION

A society where all young people strive to create better outcomes for themselves and for their communities

PURPOSE

Out on the ocean we empower young people to realise their full potential, supporting them on their journey to adulthood and for some, careers in the maritime sector and the blue economy

MISSION

Enabling young people, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, to change their lives at sea and contribute to the maritime sector and the blue economy

OUR VALUES

NURTURING and INCLUSIVE

We care for and encourage the development of all young people and adults who voyage with us; we include and integrate all people and groups in our work, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds

POSITIVE and CHALLENGING

We are optimistic in all that we do, finding a way forward and making life happier; we challenge ourselves to seek the best in all of us and our voyagers, stimulating growth and learning

STRIVING for SOCIAL CHANGE

We relentlessly pursue cultural, behavioural and institutional change for and through young people in society, and for the maritime environment

OUR SUSTAINABILITY PLEDGE

We have a strong focus on ocean sustainability and encourage young people to consider what climate change is and to understand how it affects where we sail and live.

In turn, this empowers them to reflect on what decisions they can make and what actions they can take to protect and respect the environment and their community.

Support us

There are many ways in which you can support us. From a one-off or monthly donation, to volunteering with us, or becoming a member.
