The Oceans for Youth Foundation is a nonprofit foundation designed to actively promote underwater education, and an appreciation and respect for the oceans in today's youth. It is the foundation's belief that a young person introduced early to the wonders of the oceans will become much more environmentally aware, and practice lifelong attitudes of ocean conservation, preservation and protection.
Using a nationwide force of concerned volunteers armed with a variety of educational tools, the Foundation funds and organizes specific programs that help young people become more aware and interested in the aquatic environment.
The mission of Oceans for Youth: to promote awareness, understanding, leadership and appreciation for the marine environment through the development, promotion and distribution of educational materials, programs and other media directly to youth.
