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've got to tell you, sailing with BWF is such a big deal. I could go on forever about the impact it has on their lives, but also the impact on school culture and the fact that their principal is spending time with them doing something so special as well. It facilitates a relationship that I can get to their hearts and help them heal. I'm pretty much like the dad for 180 kids who do not have any role models or an adult they can trust. You guys open doors to changing lives. Thanks for the opportunity for me to help my kids.
