Raised so far
Buoyed Up, is an initiative that assists vulnerable, at-risk children aged 7-12 years to participate in the Tackers Junior Sailing program as a way to build confidence, self-esteem and engage in an active lifestyle. The program provides children from disadvantaged backgrounds with a unique fun-based opportunity that will enhance their general life skills and capabilities. Children participate in all three levels of the Tackers program, either during the school day or over several years. Providing the complete Tackers Pathway is important in developing skills and allowing participants to transition into club membership and ongoing participation.
How will your donation help?
The Buoyed Up Program requires ongoing funding to continue to offer the life-changing resilience-building experiences it is known for. Quite simply, the more funding received, the more students can take part in the program, and gain the self-confidence and life skills to be successful, on the water, in the classroom and beyond.
