Quest for Transformation

In Thank You, Youth by Ashton Smith

Dear Courageous Supporter,

I am writing to thank you for supporting our program at Courageous.

As a Step 3 instructor, I helped our sailors progress to sail dinghies independently for the first time. This experience has allowed to witness first hand the personal development of young students. The change not only in sailing skills and boat handling but also in confidence, social skills, and friendships has been truly exceptional. One particular student began the course refusing to swim or go into the water but by the end of the program loved swimming, sailing, and capsizing. The transformation I witnessed was amazing and it could not have happened without the support of people like you. Thank you so much for all of you do!

-Charlotte
