Youth & Young Adult
Piers Park Sailing Center provides fully inclusive educational programs for under-served youth who are at-risk or living with a disability.
Programming is available to students through inclusive field trips, summer programming, family outings, and in-school programs designed to compliment curriculum.
In all of our Youth Development Programs children with disabilities will participate with his or her same aged peers. Instructors adapt their teaching styles, provide additional equipment or staff if needed.
We recognize that there are very few recreational opportunities for children with disabilities. PPSC is proud to serve adaptive youth from East Boston and surrounding communities.
