I AM WATER believes in ocean conservation through transformative human experience. We are working to create a movement of people who are in love with the ocean - a new generation of youth and adults who recognize that the oceans are important and need to be taken care of because the oceans are an integral part of what it means to be human on this planet.
We train teams of snorkel workshop leaders who share the ocean with kids who have never experienced kelp forests and coral reefs before. Our two day workshops not only educate and inspire youth to love and protect the ocean, they also work to develop the communities they work within. The leaders we train are a mix of seasoned ocean experts and members from the communities we serve. The funding you provide for each workshop not only provides snorkel gear, wetsuits, transportation, and food for the kids, it also provides crucial project based compensation to our workshop leaders. In the communities we work with, the human development and ocean conservation components must work together. The funds you donate for our workshops go directly towards supporting our oceans and underprivileged coastal communities.
