The Wahine Project

Mission

To Eliminate the barriers that prevent a diversity of youth from a relationship with the ocean and with one another.

The Big Idea

Provide a 1 year ocean program that will fund Seaside youth who can see the ocean from their School but may never get to the beach or develop the skills that will keep them safe there. This program will provide funding for them to attend a school year and summer program so they can participate on a regular basis on the beach and in ocean activities. Ocean safety and ocean stewardship will inspire these youth to live their healthiest and fullest lives in relationship with the sea!

"Our daughter has social anxiety being an only child and going through all the social isolation with COVID. Your instructors are so incredibly inclusive and enthusiastic that now she cannot wait to join the group each day. And she’s developing a great love of the ocean. Thank you so much. You all are awesome and have a beautiful program. ❤️❤️"
