Ocean Youth Trust South

Ocean Youth Trust South

Ocean Youth Trust South is charity which uses Adventure Under Sail as a personal development opportunity for young people aged 12-25, taking them to sea in our 72-foot yacht John Laing.We sail with around 450 young people each year. Roughly two-thirds will be disadvantaged or vulnerable in some way: we work in partnership with other organisations both to select these young people and also to ensure that lessons learned and achievements enjoyed on a voyage are carried through into a long-term programme of work with each young person. These partnerships include mainstream and special schools and youth clubs; other charities; local authorities and social work teams and many more. Examples of young crew members selected in this way might be siblings of life-limited children using a local children's hospice; children who have been bullied or bereaved or the victims of crime; young people who have been homeless; young people affected by family situations such as drug or alcohol abuse; children in local authority care; young carers and many more.
