How We Work

We are invested in providing underrepresented youth with a unique outdoor experience. We work closely with schools and community organizations to ensure that every youth is given an opportunity to learn our core beliefs. We then provide updates back to our partners  and  donors.

Where we work

We serve five districts in San Francisco –  Bayview, Mission, Excelsior, Sunset, and Fillmore. Lack of social services and strong partner organizations all play a part in where we choose to work. We focus on providing youth with their first exposure to the ocean.
