FOUNDED IN 1998
Broad Reach Foundation provides programs based in the sport, science and mastery of sailing for youth from vulnerable communities.
The programs combine leadership and life skills development through sail training – a unique model seldom accessible to this population.
Broad Reach works with over 200 youth annually between the ages of 12 and 24. They come from a variety of economic and socially challenged environments such as homeless shelters, priority neighbourhoods, young offender programs, and street youth drop-in centres.
Most of these youth have no opportunity to participate in on-water recreational and skills developing activities. To that end, Broad Reach believes that economics should never be a barrier to participation and provides all its programs free of charge.
