Our Strategy


To provide programs for young people that will improve academic achievement, create more physical activity, enhance life skill experiences, encourage activities that integrate young people into the community and support families through activities, education and advocacy.
 
Oceanspray's youth programs and activities are designed to enhance academics, prevent substance abuse in the future and support working families. Our youth programs provide comprehensive services that meet children's need for everything from nutrition and personal safety to academic and emotional support. We believe that although, academic success is important for children, high-quality programs should focus on the development of the whole child, integrating academic supports such as literacy skills into programming that also supports children's social, emotional and physical development. By taking this approach, we concentrate on the unique needs of each child, with programs that can help children learn to establish and maintain balanced and healthy lifestyles themselves.

Our programs explore different cultures, art, history, music, games, technology, character development, and leadership through experiential learning techniques designed to awaken the curious child.

Oceanspray seeks to expose the underserved rural coastal young people to incredible adventures not readily available and creating opportunities to utilize and value youth as a community resource.
