Afterguard Sailing Foundation is the non-profit of Afterguard Sailing Academy.
Your donation will help to raise funds enabling Afterguard to continue providing courses for the OUSD alternative HS, Oakland Street Academy. Students take a year of courses (5-6 per year for 10 to 20 youth per course) This occurs over a 40 week period inclusive of 3 trimesters. The students receive PE credits but the program is designed to make their studies in Math and Science come alive, notably physics. They have to keep their grades up and stay in school to attend these courses, which has proved to help reduce the drop out rate for that school.
Afterguard Sailing Academy has run these courses this since 2006. Since then we have added another school for 2 years but 4 years ago when budgets were slashed we could only support one school not 2, using all proceeds from our regular sailing academy.
So now we have split the company into a real foundation for the outreach programs for youth and community separating the adult/family courses into the ASA Afterguard Sailing Academy. This move is what makes it possible to raise money to be able to continue plus re-open the doors to other schools.
