Giving Back the St. Lawrence is an immersion into a fascinating world, through expeditions on a sail training vessel. During this interactive experience, knowledge comes from direct action.

It also is the opportunity to strengthen the link between youth and develop soft skills and communication as well as implement projects that will be completed during the school year.


Aboard our training vessel, youth are treated as crew members. They have a chance to participate in sailing manoeuvres and chores related to cooking and maintenance.

A typical day combines various chores, manoeuvres and theory-learning sessions. Each new activity is supervised by an official crew member.

Dates for this program will be announced shortly.


I knew that in every single thing we accomplish, we learn something new and become better. But I didn’t know how much this sailing expedition would actually help me.

I truly didn’t know. Never did I expect so many benefits.
