The Courageous Youth Program does so much more than just teach sailing. At Courageous, we aim to transform kids' lives through the sport of sailing. Our instruction team works to foster a love of sailing, adventure and the outdoors. They give students the values, skills and confidence that they will need to thrive in their communities and their lives.
We teach students to empldy the values of our COURAGE curriculum, both on the water and off. As they learn to sail, participate in team-building activities and discussions, and engage in community service projects around the harbor, our students cultivate essential life skills including those in communication, teamwork and leadership.
Courageous collaborates with Save the Harbor/Save the Bay and Sailor's for the Sea to teach our students an active respect for the waters on which they sail and the surrounding ecosystem, Students learn about the many organisms and natural resources of Boston Harbor and, under the guidance of our instruction team, initiate beach clean-ups, water quality testing, and other activities to help protect some of our city's most precious environmental treasures.
