MISSION & HISTORY

Granting children from all backgrounds an opportunity to discover the joy in outdoor activities and education, while creating meaningful relationships without the constant lure of technology.

‚Äč

The Bright Futures Youth Foundation was established in 2017 by a group of community members with a shared passion for helping young people understand the value of outdoor learning and social activities. In its initial fundraising campaign, the Bright Futures Youth Foundation set out to raise money for the purchase of 22 new RS Tera sailboats. The campaign was successfully completed in 2018 and the new RS Teras were purchased to bolster the Oceanside Yacht Club’s Junior Learn to Sail Program. The program now runs year-round with a beginner, intermediate and advanced sailing program.

PARTNERS

We are proud to partner with community organizations to help us provide activities for young people that range from a few hours to a few days. Learn more about our partners below.
