Mission Statement

Our mission is to bring the spirit of the sea to youth with hands-on experiences aboard a sailing vessel in order to educate and inspire new awareness, perspectives, and initiative regarding the oceans, the environment, their communities, and themselves.

Our goal is to provide a meaningful marine experience to every middle- and high-school-aged youth in the San Francisco Bay area, but we especially seek to provide services at no cost to those who are at risk, disadvantaged, suffering illness, or who would uniquely benefit from or otherwise not have an opportunity to sail.

Description

Spirit of the Sea provides experiential education not available in a classroom. By providing a meaningful outdoor marine adventure aboard the organization's 64' sailboat, they provide a perfect environment to cultivate critical thinking skill, perseverance, teamwork and leadership skills.

This knowledge and experience enables the participants to make better choices in life. They get a broader sense of community, teamwork and self. They gain awareness that they have the ability to take action, be effective and influence their own lives, and assume responsibility for their own behaviors.
