SAVING UP TO COME SAILING
If you can’t wait to step aboard Prolific as crew, don’t let the cost put you off. Keep positive about raising the money and get started. The sooner you make some plans to help cover the cost, the sooner you will start to believe that it really is possible. Remember, plenty of young people have made it happen – it is possible and we have some great ideas to get you started.
Ocean Youth Trust South has a number of schemes to help provide additional funding so that young people can sail with us. Find out if you can apply for one of our Awards or Bursaries to help with the cost of your trip.
You might be too old to qualify as crew on anything other than our adult voyages (normally two weekends and one longer voyage each year) but if you are not raising sails it doesn’t mean we don’t need your help raising funds. Whether you are working with young fundraisers, raising money yourself or would like to make a donation – your support is invaluable. Our main website has information on volunteering, making donations and becoming a member of our Sea Staff
SELL YOUR STUFF
Turn the things you don’t want into money. Whether you are saving up for your own voyage or want to raise money to donate, eBay is the answer. Don’t worry if you haven’t done it before, we have a guide to getting started.
Whatever you’ve got planned, having a few posters is always a good idea. We’ve also got sponsorship forms and information slips to help you explain all the good things that the money you raise will be spent on.
