Working with young people

Taymara working with young people
Using the RIB Catalina for specialised training courses

Groups of young people, all under 25 and with a history of re-offending, have been given a basic grounding in maritime skills by our two regular instructors. Some have gone on to complete RYA Powerboat qualifications which, it is hoped, will lead them eventually into paid employment. The project has not been without its challenges, however, the outcomes indicate that this two year programme, paid for by the Big Fund, will make its own significant impact on an appreciable number of young people who are trying to get their lives back on course.
