On Course with CashBack
With the support of a generous grant from Whirlwind, Ocean Youth Trust Scotland will deliver its ground breaking ‘On Course with Cashback’ programme to 288 young people over the next three years. This programme will target those young who live in some of the most deprived areas in Scotland using sail training as a catalyst for positive change. These youngsters are ‘at risk’ of falling through the system and are not in employment, education, or training. The grant from Whirlwind will specifically support two voyages for twenty young people from North Ayrshire and Midlothian in September 2017. During the voyage, the novice sailors will gain nationally accredited qualifications, learn life skills, and improve their communication and problem-solving skills.
