Ocean Youth Trust Scotland

Ocean Youth Trust Scotland aims to give young people the opportunity to realise their full potential through the challenge of adventure under sail during which young Scots aged from 12-25 build their social and personal skills and have the opportunity to gain nationally recognised qualifications.

Our grant of £5,000 enabled 60 new volunteers to be equipped with the necessary skills to lead sail training voyages around Scotland and beyond and to pass on their knowledge and skills to young people on the boats in a spirit of fun and adventure.

Young people are empowered on each voyage by learning new skills and finding strength, helping to increase their self-confidence, responsibility and respect.
