D1040 Rotary Youth Development Under Sail

This programme is aimed at the personal development of young people.


Rotary Youth Development Under Sail

in partnership with Ocean Youth Trust North

WE ARE SEEKING 4 VOLUNTEER MENTORS for  who are interested in giving support to a young person?

The role of the volunteer is to accompany the Awardees on one of the voyages and to support them during the week. This will enable the crew to concentrate on the Sail Training and personal development. 

Please download and complete a volunteer registration form or for further information, please contact: clients@oytnorth.org.uk



This programme is aimed at the personal development of young people.  Awardees who have been selected and sponsored by their local Rotary Club are engaged through a 6 day residential Sail Training/Work experience during a voyage at sea.

Sail Training with Ocean Youth Trust North requires participants to confront many challenges, both physical and emotional.  It is an activity that inspires self-confidence and the acceptance of personal responsibility, promotes the acceptance of others whatever their social or cultural backgrounds and develops a willingness to take controlled risks.  For most it is a positive life changing experience.

Young people who would gain most from this experience are often those who can least afford it.  Sponsorship from local Rotary Clubs allows those, who otherwise would be unable to participate, benefit from this life changing experience
