Pegasus Project

Their mission is “No Child Left Ashore!” Operating now for more than a quarter century, the Pegasus Project is a youth and adult marine environmental education program with a strong community and volunteer foundation. A grant for this learning program will provide access for school students to the SF Bay marine environment aboard Pegasus, the vessel operated by the Pegasus Project. This project provides equal access to the bay via direct, on-the-water experiences. The program entails training teachers, delivering curriculum materials, classroom preparation, and post-voyage class work for students. The majority (85% plus) of our kids are below the poverty line and are people of color. We also donate voyages to other community non profits and partners for their fundraising as well as voyages for their clients.
