Bermuda Sloop Foundation
The Bermuda Sloop Foundation has been serving Bermuda's youth since 2006. They aim to provide character and educational development through sail training aboard the Spirit of Bermuda. Through this unique experiential learning the foundation hopes young people will develop positive life outcomes and are directed away from poor attitudes, negative peer pressure, gang affiliation and crime. Through the structured experiential learning model, students are able to build resilience and become productive members of the community. http://www.bermudasloop.org/
The Reading Clinic
The Reading Clinic was founded in 1968 in response to the needs of children with a specific reading disability (dyslexia). Since that time it has grown from providing specialized tutoring based in the founder’s home to an array of services designed to meet the needs of individuals with specific learning disabilities in a purpose-built facility. Our work has included structured, multisensory, phonetic instruction for reading and spelling (approximately 80 students per year), psychoeducational/neurodevelopmental assessments, consultation with family members, consultations/workshops for educators. The newest addition to our services is the ICAN Math Programme. This programme extends the power of math to students who learn differently.
Mentor. Lead. Inspire.
Since its inception in 1996, YouthNet has worked to unlock the potential in Bermuda’s youth; stemming from their belief that all young people possess strengths and abilities necessary to succeed in life. The school-based mentoring programme seeks to align the strengths of these young people (mentees) with the strengths of adults and peers (mentors) in a positive and nurturing environment; promoting opportunities for young people to thrive through positive relationships. YouthNet provides a continuum of support to any child who should want one, helping to ensure that their lives are positively impacted.
The Association was registered as a Charitable Organisation under the "Bermuda Sea Cadet Association Act, 1968". Their purpose is to sponsor, finance, support and administer the "Bermuda Sea Cadet Corps" and promote its welfare in Bermuda. It is administered and guided by an Executive Council, which is elected annually from the Island-wide membership.

International Maritime Rescue Federation

It is the Hellenic Marine Environment Protection Association; the pioneering voluntary commitment of Greek seafarers and ship owners to safeguard the seas from ship-generated pollution. In 1982 in Piraeus, therefore, arming themselves with the motto “To Save the Seas”, they declared their resolve to eliminate marine pollution generated from ships and to enhance the level of safety on board them.
Mission to Seafarers
Piracy, shipwreck, abandonment and separation from loved ones are just a few of the problems merchant seafarers face. Around the world, The Mission to Seafarers provides help and support to the 1.5 million men and women who face danger every day to keep our global economy afloat. We work in over 260 ports caring for seafarers of all ranks, nationalities and beliefs. Through our global network of chaplains, staff and volunteers we offer practical, emotional and spiritual support to seafarers through ship visits, drop-in centres and a range of welfare and emergency support services. http://www.missiontoseafarers.org/about-us
Access to good medical care is the key to providing desperately needed hope and healing. But how can that be accomplished in countries without basic supporting infrastructure—including a clean water supply, a reliable source of electricity and trained medical professionals. The answer began in a dream of a hospital ship, a self-contained instrument of mercy that would take highly qualified volunteers to the people who need them most. That dream became Mercy Ships.
Sail Training International
Sail Training international aim to develop and educate young people through the sail training experience regardless of nationality, culture, religion, gender or social background. Through a range of activities and services the programme insures development and worldwide membership.
The Maritime Foundation
The Maritime Foundation promotes Britain’s interests across the entire maritime sector. Its purpose is to inform and raise public and parliamentary awareness of the importance of Britain’s maritime industries, commerce and defence through education, training and research, as well as through the Foundation’s annual Maritime Media Awards.
St. David' Island historical society
The Carter House and Museum is a 17th century Bermudian farmhouse now dedicated to the unique history of St. David's Island, Bermuda. Run by the St David' Island Historical Society, their vision is to exhibit as realistically as possible the first 100 years of Bermuda from settlement in 1612, whilst protecting the historic preservation. The site also incorporates one of the last remaining original views of Castle Harbor and its museum details the uniqueness of St David's islanders and their fierce independence as accomplished seafarers, which is very representative of the first settlers of Bermuda.
