Ocean Classroom Foundation

Ocean Classroom Foundation is dedicated to building the next generaton of ocean stewards through education under sail, providing programs of sea education and adventure for the youth of America aboard the schooners Westward, Spirit of Massachusetts and Harvey Gamage. Ocean Classroom Foundation is a leader in experiential education, with award-winning programs sailing from the Canadian Maritimes to the Caribbean Sea. Programs vary from one-day, to one-week, to semester long adventures for middle school, high school and college students; custom programs for schools, youth and community organizations and continuing education for American history teachers. The World Ocean Observatory brings to the Foundation a new, dynamic communications system and place of exchange for ocean information, education and public discourse, which can serve as an innovative model for environmental education and the demonstration of conservation practice worldwide.
