Founded in 1998, Broad Reach Foundation for Youth Leaders is a registered charity built on partnerships with youth-serving agencies. Promoting accessibility and inclusion, they believe that economics should never be a barrier to participation.
Broad Reach offers the only free program for at-risk youth that combines building life skills, job training and sailing in a unique setting aboard one of their 35′-40’ sailboats. Through on-shore and on-water programs, youth aged 12-24 use sailing as a learning medium to develop confidence, leadership, teamwork, responsibility and positive work ethic.
A unique community concept, Broad Reach Foundation has introduced life-skills education through sailing to over 1800 young people with economic, social and physical barriers. Being able to offer unique programs to youth throughout the Greater Toronto Area is made possible through the generous financial grants and donations from sponsoring organizations, individual donors, and the support of the sailing community.
