Our sailboat, Wisdom, takes young adults aging out of the foster care system on 80-day trips through the Caribbean. On their journey, they learn cooking, cleaning, financial responsibility, conflict management and other essential life skills. They will gain accredited PADI diving, IYT sailing and first aid certifications while participating in outreach and conservation projects. Along the way, the shipmates will engage in intercultural experiences and develop a global perspective. Through this adventure, we aim to inspire a future of infinite possibilities…

The Caribbean children that we target through our mentorship program are growing up in communities with extreme poverty…
