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
Our school group took an AMAZING sailing trip recently with 10 boys — 9 of whom had never been sailing or on the Bay before, including two were not sure what sailing was :). The Blue Water volunteers complemented our students so well, and the the trip was truly transformational.
