Help Us Reach Our Goal of $30,000

Sea School Holiday Newsletter 2018 .jpg

As we approach our 25th year in operation, we invite you to join us in a pause, to acknowledge the wonderful journey that thousands of young people have experienced through their adventures at sea with Sea School. We can say with confidence that the kind of challenging, real-life training we offer at sea in small boats and in the wilderness is a powerful builder of self esteem and life-skills. It is an excellent training ground for learning to take command of one’s life.

Our 2018 season was incredible! We are celebrating record breaking early registration and waiting lists for our march break and summer expeditions, we welcomed more than 50% of youth back into programs from the 2017 season, we offered over 40 full bursaries for participation, we trained 30 leading crew and instructional staff, and expanded our reach with more youth attending from rural regions of NS, delivering over 30 community based workshops, and offering professional development opportunities for recreation practitioners.

Now Sea School is more relevant than ever. Sea School has been identified in outdoor recreation and marine sectors as one of very few immersive education programs that provide authentic ‘on the ocean’ experiences that foster personal growth while also preparing youth for future opportunities within their communities, families and careers. This success brings challenges and tremendous opportunities for donors like you to contribute. In order to continue to develop strong community leaders, we need to respond to the increasing demands of young people and continue to prioritize vulnerable and marginalized youth and ensure diversity in our programs. This fosters a rich learning environment and also confronts the challenges of access, giving all youth the opportunity for gainful life pursuits in Nova Scotia and beyond.

Help us reach our goal of $30,000 by the end of 2018. Your donation will directly offset the costs of offering high quality programs to young people in Nova Scotia and support our incredible team to grow and provide meaningful relationships that directly connect our participants to their future life paths.
Thank you for your generosity and support. You have helped to make all of this possible.
