Ocean Youth Trust South

Who we are

Ocean Youth Trust South exists to offer personal development through adventure under sail to young people aged 12 to 25. The majority of young crew members come from vulnerable or disadvantaged backgrounds or face significant problems at home or at school; but there are also places for young people from mainstream backgrounds. Young crew members living in a wide variety of circumstances benefit enormously from being taken right out of their familiar environment and encouraged to face new challenges, enjoy new experiences, make friends, work as a team, acquire new skills and, above all, develop their confidence. In practice this is achieved by putting twelve young people together on board our 72-foot sailing vessel, John Laing, with safety and support provided by skilled sea staff.
