About Oceans for Youth
Conceived in 1998 and incorporated in 1999, Oceans for Youth Foundation is a non-profit foundation designed to encourage underwater education for everyone from youth to adults. Using a variety of educational tools, the Foundation has implemented specific programs that draws everyone into being more aware and interested in the underwater environment.rn

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.

The primary goal: to interest and prepare youth and adults for the joy and excitement of exploring and protecting the underwater world, utilizing educational institutions, teachers, parents and volunteers. It is the foundation's belief that a young person introduced early to the wonders of the oceans will naturally become much more environmentally aware and practice a lifelong attitude of ocean conservation and protection.
