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
Just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know that I am retiring from my position as Chief Juvenile Probation Officer. One of the highlights of my 30 year career in probation has been the partnership with the Blue Water Foundation. Your commitment to providing exposure to sailing on the SF Bay to youth in the juvenile justice system is unprecedented and amazing for San Francisco and Bay Area youth! Thank you for believing in us and our kids!
