Financial need tops the list of barriers standing between many kids and a potentially life-changing summer experience. Many families also need extra help with transportation, access to swimming lessons, meals, extended-day care, and summertime academic support.
In 2012, Courageous launched our Reach Initiative — which targets all barriers to participation for kids at every level of our program — to directly address these issues. Each year, over sixty 4th and 5th graders participate in our Swim Sail Science program, an intensive two-year program that blends sailing, swimming, and academics taught by Boston Public School teachers. Swim Sail Science has been proven effective in reducing summer learning loss and helping youth build invaluable life skills.
When you give to Fund-A-Future, you are providing crucial support for the Reach Initiative, Swim Sail Science, and all Courageous kids who would not be able to experience the joy of sailing without your help.
