With our sail training, STEM* education and ocean science programmes, Seas Your Future promote personal development through improving confidence and resilience of young people. Our trainees disembark with work experience in the maritime sector, enhanced knowledge and transferrable skills that are sought after in multiple career paths, and many develop new career aspirations and professional aptitudes.
Our work with young people, many of whom are from disadvantaged or under-represented backgrounds, aligns with the ethos of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of supporting a strong and sustainable society based on thriving individuals. The feedback we receive from our trainees, their parents and teachers indicates that positive outcomes from time on board are long-lasting and, in some cases, life-changing.
