Making Waves Foundation Wright of Passage program is for young people between the ages of 15 to 18 who are looking for learning options outside of the classroom.

Participants work with our volunteer mentors in a stable workshop environment to construct sailing dinghies, kayaks, and similar projects. Through this process they build confidence, consistency and develop the positive attitudes and skills needed for their journey through education, training, and employment.

The program runs on Wednesdays and Thursdays across the school terms. Alternate Thursdays involve sailing training out on the harbour.

THIS PROGRAM IS BY INVITATION ONLY, please email Matt Smyth (msmyth@makingwavesfoundation.com.au) if interested.
