Sailing centers in the Midwest and Pacific Northwest have been awarded Youth Engagement Grants by US Sailing's Reach Initiative.

Congratulations to Green Bay Sail & Paddle, Milwaukee Community Sailing Center, The Foundry Sailing Association, and the Oregon Youth Sailing Foundation for being awarded Youth Engagement Grants in 2020 from US Sailing.

The Youth Engagement Grant program provides individual organization support and an opportunity to grow Reach programming at these centers. Grants support costs for materials, staff training, and program costs when implementing Reach. Recipients are often new to Reach and are seeking support with partnership development and content delivery. With limited access to summer activities in an environment growing in online education, these programs are invaluable for the youth who are now given a chance to experience hands-on learning while exploring their local aquatic environments from a sailboat.

The Reach Program utilizes sailing as an educational platform, challenging youth to embrace education, establish a love of learning and explore productive Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) based careers. Combining educators, sailing instructors, engineers, scientists with today's youth to provide them with a one of a kind authentic learning experience, giving students the opportunity to apply classroom learning in a cooperative work environment.

These grants were made possible by support from Rolex and US Sailing donors.
