Youth On Water
With an eye toward the future, as well as the past, the Gloucester Schooner Festival Committee is seeking to support programs that involve young people on Cape Ann. This past year, the Committee chose to institutionalize the educational component of the Festival by providing opportunities for kids to sail on the participating schooners, as well as offering financial support to local programs that put Cape Ann kids on the water throughout the year.  Specifically, the Committee selected two organizations that foster greater knowledge and appreciation of Cape Ann’s coastal waters by providing opportunities for young people to sail, row or otherwise become immersed in our ocean environment. Two grants of $1,500 were awarded in 2012. Leading up to this year’s Festival, we will again raise funds, beyond the costs of producing the Gloucester Schooner Festival weekend, and offer similar support to youth-on-the-water organizations to be used in their 2014 season. To apply for these funds, please complete the attached application and submit by August 1, 2013.

Thanks very much!!
