Support a new crew of 18 BDEA students on a transformative journey aboard the Roseway! Your tax deductible contribution will make a powerful impact for underprivileged students striving to reach their full potential as responsible, productive and engaged members of our community.
Last summer, 15 students and two staff joined World Ocean School on a 3-week sail to Canada aboard the 137-foot Roseway. Students transitioned from school to the sea: they lived and slept in constant motion, took daily science classes, navigated the boat, lifted 2-ton sails into the wind during the day and anchored watches at all hours of the night. It wasn't an easy ride, but our students are used to adversity and rose to the various challenges. The life-changing experience, the bonds that developed between students and crew, the shared responsibility, problem-solving and teamwork all contributed to what they proudly call their "Salt Family."
