Oceans for Youth Programs, Need You...Need Us...Working Together...
The projects we support through funding and hard work by our volunteers across the nation will help advance our organization's mission. We accept all monetary donations, small grants, scholarships, and gifts of support for our annual funding raising events. As a direct result of funds raised from our events, we will produce additional educational materials and put these in the hands of our over 3500 volunteers across the nation. These materials are also offered to all sponsors that make a request. Our educational materials will to be used for public & private school assembles, individual class room presentations, presentations to youth groups and for other community events that we are privileged to entertain.
