This event, in its second year of resurrection (so to speak) brings the sailing and corporate communities together for the benefit of the youth we serve: the vulnerable, at risk, disadvantaged. We know that you appreciate our efforts to make a difference in their lives, that you enjoy sharing the camaraderie, and that some of you look forward to being on the water this season.

This fundraising event has exclusive sponsorship opportunities. Broad Reach is a charity engaging GTA’s disadvantaged youth in sailing to develop knowledge, skills, values and belonging. Youth become more confident, resilient, courageous, caring and engaged. They learn, have fun and contribute in the community more fully. Broad Reach is aiming to expand the scope of our programs by partnering with Toronto Brigantine graduating youth from our boats aboard the TS Playfair.

This year we have invited the Toronto Brigantine to participate in this event with us to ensure that our efforts deliver greater impact and that together we are smarter and more effective in our work.

To succeed we do rely on the Generosity of Sailors and like-minded others, who have sustained our programs since 1998.

Youth We Support We support youth aged 12-24-29* for whom, because of their circumstances, the promise of a better future is just not a reality. We provide youth with the tools to engage in their communities and to share their trans-formative experience of sailing with their peers. *29 when experiencing disability

Youth Take Initiative Some youth take on an active role in our Broad Reach community by becoming peer mentors and volunteers.

Youth Programs Funds raised are invested in programs engaging more than 375 youth from across the GTA annually providing them with an exceptional advantage to learn, grow potential, engage and contribute.

From the President: A shared responsibility and a shared benefit

“Broad Reach offers potential sponsors three-tier options to promote your corporation. These options offer valuable contact opportunities for those interested in creating a distinctive presence at the Spring Thaw event. This is an exceptional opportunity to align your brand with the youth who deserve your support and with the sailing community of people who navigate through life with skill and confidence.” Paul Tedesco, President, Broad Reach for Youth
