Sailing centers throughout the country have been awarded grants to grow youth sailing utilizing STEM and environmental education through the US Sailing Reach Initiative.

The grants provide non-profit sailing centers with funds and resources to further their Reach program goals and provide more opportunities for students in their community.

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, and 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.

Now more than ever, youth are seeking places to explore their local ecosystems, engage in hands-on learning experiences, and get to know one another in a safe, fun environment. This is especially the case for those who typically may not have access to or awareness of these opportunities. The goal is to create a positive educational and recreational space for youth of all backgrounds.

2021 Youth Engagement Grants

Reach Youth Engagement grants have been made available to provide financial support for materials, program costs, and staff training when implementing the Reach Initiative. Grant recipients are sailing organizations that are often new to the Reach program and seeking support with partnership development and content delivery. 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 following programs were selected for 2021 US Sailing Reach Youth Engagement grants. These grants were made possible by support from Rolex and US Sailing donors. Congratulations to the 2021 recipients.
