Young Mariners Foundation
- To create a world-class educational program built around sailing and the sea, uniquely designed to influence the growth of the economically challenged children into responsible citizens who care for themselves and all living things.
- To teach boating-related activites—such as swimming, water safety, teamwork, meteorology, navigation, marine biology, and respect for the natural resources.
- To build the curiosity, intellectual skills and motivation to help them achieve academic and lifelong success.
- To accurately and timely measure and report results to ensure that donations are well-spent and that all participants—founders, partners, donors, staff, and youth are proud of their support and association with the organization.
