Support Waterfront Recreation

"EVERY CHILD'S PERSPECTIVE IS IMPROVED 50 YARDS OFFSHORE"

Harry McDonough, Courageous Sailing Program Founder 

Support summer waterfront programs and give UMass Boston students and urban kids the summer of a lifetime.

The UMass Boston Waterfront Recreation Program is proud to partner with Courageous Sailing, a Boston community sailing center and youth development program that uses sailing, swimming, and related STEM education as platforms for social-emotional growth and out-of-school-time learning.  

The program is committed to making sailing accessible to all and removing barriers that have traditionally prevented the participation of marginalized youth. As students master sailing skills, they also build life skills crucial for success on the water, in school, and in the workplace. Programs based at our newly rebuilt Fox Point dock serve 300 metro Boston children and teens per year.

Every Gift Counts 

Your gift today will allow UMass Boston to enhance student life on campus for the 17,000 undergraduate and graduate students and the youth in the metro Boston community.
