We were founded as a secondary rehabilitation and “leadership through outdoor recreation and sports program” for youth and families with disabilities. The sailing program has been an award-winning program. The success of the program led to opportunities to develop new biotechnologies, influence and consult with global NGOs, identify and train indigenous emerging leaders and communities, advocate and advise on inclusive policies/practices within schools and governments. School districts, churches, universities, global NGOs and government programs have benefited from our training and consultation on inclusive leadership development.
Through outdoor and sports programs, youth regardless of ability, are provided with the opportunity to participate independently. We put cohorts together of diverse youth; those with disabilities and loss, those who know injustice and poverty and those who are high achieving upwardly mobile. This is an opportunity to promote friendships, community, and fun where physical or social limitations are no longer invasive.I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let's face it, friends make life a lot more fun. Chuck Swindoll
