Watch this short video to enjoy learning more about our organization, the kids we serve and witness our volunteers in action. Each week, we make a difference in the lives of young people in the community and enjoy our beautiful San Francisco Bay. We look forward to sailing with you soon!
Many thousands of students & hundreds of volunteers have sailed with us. We work with school and community programs serving at-risk students, as well as with N. California county juvenile probation departments. Photos are of students, volunteers, coordinators, and boats of BWF.
Stephanie was introduced to Blue Water Foundation as a student at Light House charter school. Upon graduating, she became one of our volunteers! Watch this video to come along on a typical Blue Water Foundation sail and see how our programs alter the lives of our students.
Our newest program involves working with the Alameda County Probation Department and youths currently at Camp Sweeny, a facility in San Leandro in which convicted youths are given the opportunity in a camp like setting to make their way back to society.
Sails & Events
I wanted to thank Blue Water Foundation for a fantastic sailing trip last week. The staff and volunteers were amazing with our students - attentive, kind, and very welcoming - and truly dedicated themselves to making sure our trip was a memorable experience. Most of our 11 students had never been on a boat before, let alone sailed beneath the Golden Gate Bridge and around Alcatraz, and we could not have asked for a better crew on this unique day.
