As a BIPOC single mother and full time artist, I’m always looking for free or cost-effective opportunities for my child. When our school recommended this program, I jumped at the chance. I thought it would be expensive, but I was willing to
try and figure out a way to make it work. Imagine my surprise to find out it is a free program! It’s truly incredible, the work that the founders have done to create accessible and barrier-free opportunities to marginalized youth.” A parent of a participant.
“The Broad Reach Ships2Shores program has been an incredible opportunity for my child. Never having been on the water before, she was frightened and nervous to participate. I even caught her nervously looking for an escape route as we were walking up to the gate! However, as I picked her up the first day after the program, her entire demeanour had shifted. She was sun tanned and full of joy and energy. My daughter has always struggled with confidence, particularly with trying new things. I have been overjoyed to see her confidence grow with each passing day of this program.” Mother of 14-year-old participant
