Ocean Youth: Empowering Tomorrow’s Ocean Leaders
Ocean Youth (OY) is an empowering initiative that aims to nurture the leaders and change-makers of tomorrow, instilling in them a deep commitment to the conservation and protection of our oceans. This transformative program is specifically designed for high school-aged students and spans a calendar year.
At Ocean Youth, we offer participants a unique opportunity to acquire valuable skills and knowledge that extend beyond the program and into any future workplace. Our focus is on capacity building, nurturing young individuals who harbor a passion for conservation, sustainability, and innovative problem-solving to address critical issues concerning sea life and marine ecosystems.
Throughout the program, participants engage in diverse experiences, including animal keeper and guest interaction sessions. Additionally, they have the privilege of joining field trips and nature-based excursions organized in partnership with reputable organizations. Participants also play a pivotal role in coordinating events and advocating for positive behavioral changes within their communities.
The program extends beyond the walls of the aquarium, offering opportunities to participate in activities such as animal rehabilitation and releases, marketing and public relations initiatives, and the creation and implementation of community conservation campaigns, whenever the occasion arises.
One of the most enriching aspects of Ocean Youth is the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who share the same passion and dedication for our oceans and marine life. We seek to collaborate with Solutionaries and Oceanpreneurs—individuals determined to drive significant positive change for our planet while enjoying the journey.
