It’s Bigger Than the Boat
Our work is powered by the belief that all children are capable of learning and thriving.
Experiential, hands-on, project based education is essential for engaging and inspiring students.
There is so much left to do to transform our education system so that all youth can be the builders of their own lives. Wind & Oar Boat School is dedicated to making that transformation a reality.
