Help launch Rocking the Boat's new Middle School Program

Make a 100% tax deductible donation to support Rocking the Boat's current initiative to increase programming for middle school students. 

In 2018, the organization intends to create an afterschool programming block for local middle school students that will resemble the core Youth Development program for high schoolers.  The first phase will be to launch a special introductory program exclusively for groups of eighth graders.  The students will benefit from the opportunity to explore each subject—sailing, hands-on Bronx River ecology, and proficiency with wood working tools in the boatshop—more deeply than has been previously offered.  For Rocking the Boat, the program will develop an additional pipeline of potential participants who have dipped their toes in the Youth Development Program, and provide crucial experience towards a long term goal of applying its youth development model to middle school students.
