Ocean Youth Trust South

Charity description

Ocean Youth Trust South logo
Ocean Youth Trust South offers personal development through Adventure Under Sail to young people aged 12-25 from the widest possible variety of backgrounds.

OYT South uses the experience of living and working together in a sailing vessel to help young people develop confidence, self-esteem, team-working, responsibility, communication and the ability to cope with challenges and unfamiliar situations.The skills developed on a voyage with Ocean Youth Trust South are designed to make a lasting difference to young people. This is not primarily about learning to sail, but about developing qualities which matter in everyday life. OYT South is the first UK sail training charity to win The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service; and our Chief Executive was the inaugural winner of the Maritime & Coastguard Agency’s Award for Command Commitment to Sail Training. We work in partnership with many organisations representing disadvantaged and vulnerable young people, and can show an exceptional level of repeat bookings as evidence of the impact we can have.
