Blue Hill Troupe is proud to partner with Rocking the Boat for the second time, as charity parther for our 96th season.
Rocking the Boat empowers young people from the South Bronx to develop self-confidence, set ambitious goals, and gain the skills necessary to achieve them. Students work together to build wooden boats, learn to row and sail, and restore local urban waterways, revitalizing their community while creating better lives for themselves. Kids don’t just build boats, boats build kids.
Rocking the Boat is committed to helping its participants:
- Stay in high school until they graduate or receive an equivalency diploma
- Enroll in college or trade school and be prepared academically and emotionally to succeed there
- Develop technical skills such as sailing, boat handling, navigating, chart reading, carpentry, sample collection and testing, scientific observation, and recording data, all of which reinforce STEM concepts and put them into a practical context
- Develop soft skills such as leadership, communication, teamwork, problem solving, and critical thinking
