World Ocean School

2011 Summer Ambassador Program

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Summer Ambassador Program is an opportunity for students ages 12-16 to set sail for 16 days—expanding their perspective of the world, immersing themselves in and contributing to different cultures, and practicing community building aboard the historic landmark schooner Roseway. During their expedition at sea, students will learn and practice seamanship and navigation as they operate and maintain the 137-foot schooner that is their home, as well as carry out lessons in history, environmental responsibility, teambuilding, and language arts.

World Ocean School promotes stimulating experiential education while fostering an appreciation for and a commitment to community and relationships, and cultivating an expanded world view. The curriculum is carried out in the formal setting of the ship’s classroom, in small groups on ship watches, and in the field on shore visits. Each student will keep an individual journal as well as participate in a nautical book club and various community service projects throughout the voyage. There will be tremendous exploration both on and off the water: sailing, hiking and community building.
