About BROAD REACH FOUNDATION FOR YOUTH LEADERS
A classroom that rocks! Founded in 1998, Broad Reach Foundation for Youth Leaders is a registered charity built on partnerships with youth-serving agencies in the Toronto community. Promoting accessibility and inclusion, we believe that economics should never be a barrier to participation. Offering the only free program for disadvantaged youth that combines building life skills, job training and sailing in a unique setting aboard our 40' sailboats. Our programs centre on four aspects of their lives - intellectual, physical, emotional and vocational. 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.
