A youth-led discovery of Canadian waters and the ships that sail them.
Share your views and experiences with thousands of youth across the country and act on our collective responsibility to our oceans, lakes and rivers. Participate in arts projects, social media challenges and online events.
Each of our sailboats offers a different level of operational complexities providing youth with continuity of challenges to learn, to apply new knowledge and skills, and to embrace unique opportunities for development.
This is for those youth who are more keen than others to learn, to sail and to reach for more opportunities. Come on back every Tuesday and be a keener!
This program incorporates a unique and valuable element: inter-generational participants whose goal is to develop stronger bonds while experiencing the challenges and benefits of sailing. Long-term impact is a beneficial social impact, transferable to home, school, workplace and to the community.
By sharing the experience the participants — youth, parents, grand-parents, guardians, uncles and aunts gain the understanding of our diversity and our complexities. This is a community builder program.
Project Coastline was a youth engagement project to celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary of the Confederation through the discovery of our marine heritage. It was comprised of exciting and engaging activities designed and delivered by youth. Canadian youth ages 13-29 across Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia took charge to discover, foster and celebrate Canada’s marine heritage through nautical and creative leadership programming, including the building of a boat in Gaspesie, Quebec, a Canadian Girls STEAM Canoe nearby Lake Ontario, and running a social media and schools inter-provincial challenge campaign.
