  Northland In Need Leadership Youth

We want to run 17 voyages for up to 200 young people from the Northland Region. These voyages equip young people with life skills by building confidence, growing leadership skills and developing teamwork as well as making them more resilient. Very few of the youngsters here in the North can afford a place and we have a waiting list of students needing funding support. You can sponsor a voyage, sponsor a child or simply make a small contribution which we will allocate to a young person. All donations go towards the costs of running our youth voyages - we are not a fat charity, run on the smell of an oily rag, literally and don't employ fund raisers.

On Friday 15 April, after a hectic 48 hour turnaround following our summer tourism sailings including a half day crew get together for training, our first youth voyage departed!

Our voyage blogs are available online here and you can subscribe to them via an RSS feed from that page.

We will be offering the donations raised next month and inviting youngsters to apply for grants towards their placements.
