Connecting Communities Through Youth Education

Making a difference

We know that being near the water can calm us and connect children, their families and communities and that being near the water can reduce stress, amplify creativity and increase innovation and insight. With that in mind, we shall provide introduction to water-based recreational activities in a way for our students to dare to dream, learn, react and develop lifelong learning skills in a unique, safe and educational environment.


National Curriculum


Meeting and Exceeding Standards

Our curriculum meets the National Knowledge and On Water Skills Based Standards (NOWS) and exceeds the National Instructor Approach Standard (also NOWS). The Spirit of America Foundation has verified that these national standards of education, which are all inclusive in our sail, human powered and power sections of our curriculum, meet these standards approved by the American National Standards Institute  (ANSI) . 

A National Youth Movement!

Your Support Counts!

Your assistance allows the Spirit of America Foundation to provide Premier Youth Boating Safety Education programs around the country and to reach out to children and communities that wouldn’t be exposed to these essential skills without your generosity.
