Unite for the Sea
The Unite for the Sea free youth summer programme provides opportunities for exciting, educational water-based activities created to instill a love of the ocean! These activities are offered through our partners and include swimming, snorkeling and diving lessons.
Unite for the Sea also provides hands-on ocean conservation education through creative arts and crafts activities and lesson-based learning.
2021’s Focus – The Big 4
Unite BVI was pleased to provide a number of grants to summer programmes to support FREE swim, snorkel and dive programmes for youth across the territory. Each of our independently operated partners are hopeful that in the coming months they’ll be able to offer those programs once again. Until then we’ve got some really cool virtual activities to keep you busy… We made a custom iMovie featuring the BVI and narrated by students at YEP!
