Your support is essential to our mission!

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.

Sailing with Camp Sweeney

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.

A Testimonial

...on behalf of Girls Stepping Up For Change, I wanted to express our profound gratitude for the incredible experience given to the girls on Saturday. We are grateful for the opportunity to learn about sailing and the kindness displayed towards the girls. They all loved it and we are definitely looking forward to being out in the water again.
