How to Get Involved

Donations go directly to the operation and maintenance of our foundation to help the youth we serve. Among other activities, donations fund:

  • Youths’ participation in national and international regattas and invitationals
  • Replacement and maintenance of nautical equipment used by youth
  • Personnel training in topics related to both nautical sports and youth development
  • Sports clinics and environmental responsibility, teamwork and leadership workshops
  • Organization of large-scale events for the Cape Horn area community

We seek partnerships with a variety of businesses to act as BENEFACTORS. Their support will be used to sponsor youths’ participation in national and international sporting events. With their permission, corporate partners’ logos will be displayed on our delegation’s windbreakers and watercrafts as well as on the COLLABORATORS page of our website.

Corporate partners will also have the Foundation’s support for office retreats and sailing outings for their staff.

To be a CEDENAPW volunteer is to collaborate in youths’ education through nautical sports, sharing with them and witnessing their enthusiasm for learning and practicing these activities in a region where extreme climactic conditions such as the strong winds, low temperatures and frigid waters of the Beagle Channel make them extra challenging. You will be part of the positive impact that this initiative has on the development of our youth.

Volunteers share their talents and abilities collaborating in a variety of tasks that are primarily related to the maintenance and upkeep of the school’s infrastructure and watercrafts, outdoor activities with the youth, sailing, etc.

As a show of our gratitude, volunteers can opt to receive sailing lessons from our staff.

Volunteers may work with our center individually or as a group. Specific tasks will vary depending on the volunteers’ skillsets and the foundation’s needs.
