Project Aim

Our project offers disadvantaged 18 - 24 year olds the chance to gain professional watersports instructor qualifications - in Greece.

About the Project

This project is run by a brand new watersports company set up by two friends with a passion for the industry. Horizon Watersports operate a small sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and paddle board school in Greece.

The skills and joy that we have gained through watersports is something that we want to pass on to others. Traditionally watersports is an expensive industry to get into. Sailing and windsurfing courses are expensive, instructor courses even more so. However the huge benefits and positive influences that becoming an instructor can have on a young person's life are immeasurable.

   

Our trainees need no prior experience of watersports. Becoming an RYA qualified watersports instructor not only gives people a ticket to employment opportunities all over the world, it also brings with it the need to develop some key life skills. Communication, Safety Awareness, Team Work & Planning are just some of the skills an instructor must possess. In addition, practical skills include becoming first aid and powerboat qualified.

               

At Horizon Watersports we want to make this experience available to those in need of a life-changing opportunity. We are therefore continually raising funds to enable us to offer FREE training placements to disadvantaged 18 -24 year olds. Our placements are in Greece. They include flights, accommodation and a salary.

A chance to live in Greece, work in a team and gain internationally recognised qualifications really can change someone's outlook on life forever. For more information visit www.horizonwatersports.co.uk or www.facebook.com/horizonwatersports.
 
Thank you for your time. All pledges, of any size, are very much appreciated.
