Let’s go sailing with young people experiencing barriers! They’ll develop knowledge, skills, and social belonging.
Canada’s youth face a host of brutal obstacles. None more-so than potentially vulnerable kids like newcomers, kids from socioeconomically disadvantaged families, and oppressed minorities.
The marine sector and sailing community have traditionally been inaccessible to youth of low socio-economic status. Broad Reach Canada is committed to fostering greater equity and inclusion within these communities, and positively influencing the personal growth of youth from various backgrounds.
Use the transformative power of sail to spark confidence in the next generation of leaders — across Canada and from vulnerable and at-risk backgrounds.
