Making Changes Come About.®
AdventureSail® is a nationwide program for at risk girls ages nine to 14. The one-day introductory sailing event is a rewarding experience for the volunteers as well as the girls. Girls are experiencing the joys of sailing in conjunction with sailing venues across the US. Through the program we strive to provide a positive activity for girls that will encourage positive life choices, develop self-confidence to overcome adverse living conditions and introduce career paths and opportunities that involve the marine industry, marine related sciences and their local waters.
