A sailing programme for young people has won backing from the charitable arm of a major insurance company.

Endeavour Community Sailing will get the cash from the Argo Foundation, set up by the Argo Group.

Jennifer Pitcher, Endeavour’s community engagement, development and partnerships manager said: “We’re incredibly grateful for The Argo Foundation’s support of Endeavour Community Sailing that enables us to continue delivering positive impact in the lives of Bermuda’s youth.

“Endeavour Community Sailing leverages sailing as a tool for teaching science, technology, engineering, arts and maths — Steam concepts that are applicable through sailing to inspire students to enjoy learning about new things and to instil a lifelong appreciation for learning.”

The Endeavour middle school programme, Endeavour’s flagship scheme, has trained 2,000 students since it started in 2015.

Endeavour Community Sailing’s newest offering is its seven-week Endeavour maritime careers springboard programme, set up to provide vocational training to Bermudians aged 16 and older who are interested in a career at sea.
