Paddle With Purpose
I created the Paddle With Purpose program as I saw an opportunity to get more people involved in the marine environment who may have not had access or not considered it previously. As I spent more and more time outdoors, I began to notice a lack of diversity in marine activities. Hence, the idea for Paddle With Purpose was born. The Program uses the enormous power of travel and tourism to empower the local community in Bermuda, in particular, our youth. Working with at-risk youth in my adult life, I have a heart for young people and providing them with opportunities.
The Program provides easy access to the marine environment for underserved youth aged 10 – 18 through experiential learning.
A percentage from all our Paddle Experiences goes towards the Paddle With Purpose Program. We accomplish our mission by working with volunteers, interns and other non-profits that help to conserve and protect the marine environment.
