The Blue Water Foundation was founded as an all-volunteer, nonprofit corporation dedicated to bringing the joys of sailing to San Francisco Bay Area inner city and at risk youth.
Our volunteers and the youths we serve come from all over the San Francisco Bay Area. To achieve our mission, we work with the San Francisco Unified School District, the San Francisco Police Department and various other Bay Area Youth Programs.
Our primary objective is to provide young people an opportunity to sail. The Blue Water Foundation understands how the sea can be a mentor, as well as a challenge. Through our sailing programs, we give young people the experiences of teaching, leadership, and trying new activities. This provides a foundation for self confidence and a new perspective on the capabilities they already possess.
