Tuition-Free Youth Programs
Dharma Voyage offers tuition-free youth programs in boatbuilding, in-school rowing, after-school rowing, and expedition rowing. Last year Westport students built and launched the dory Sea Hare, and 4 students trained for and succeeded at making an offshore rowing passage all the way to Cuttyhunk and Penikese Islands with Ben in the surf boat!
This year features an even stronger partnership with the Westport Community Schools, an extended Expedition Rowing program, and a new opportunity for young girls from Our Sisters’ School in New Bedford to learn to row.
Our program costs are met partly though adult membership fees but the vast majority of program needs are met through donations and grants. Please consider being a sponsor for our May 19th Fundraising Event at Spindle Rock Club in Westport, MA. Tickets are now available online for $60.00/ea.There will be a silent auction and separate raffle items, as well as good food, drinks, and music by the River Rats. Please buy a ticket if you can join us!
