Youth Journey On the High Seas: Friendship Sails! NYC

Imagine…it is 1797 and young men and women ages 18-22, from diverse backgrounds, set forth on their maiden voyage aboard a three-masted, square rigged East Indiaman from Salem, Massachusetts bound to the port of New York Harbor. This story was common from the 1600’s to the 1800s. But what if the voyage could happen today? Can there be a more exhilarating way to meet the
Youth Agenda for America’s Great Outdoors? That and more can happen as part of this Youth Journey on the High Seas.

“Make the outdoors relevant to today’s young people: make it inviting, exciting, and fun. Ensure that all young people have access to outdoor places. Empower and enable youth to work and volunteer in the outdoors. Build upon a base of environmental and outdoor education, both formal and informal.” -A Youth Agenda for America’s Great Outdoors, 2011.
