The Royal Yacht Squadron Isle of Wight Foundation is a registered charity founded in the Royal Yacht Squadron bi-centenary year 2015.


WHAT IS THE MISSION OF THE RYS FOUNDATION?

The RYS Foundation’s mission is to work to raise aspiration of young people aged 15-29 living on the Isle of Wight, opening their minds to opportunities outside the realm of their normal environment

WHAT ARE THE OBJECTIVES OF THE RYS FOUNDATION?

The objectives of the RYS Foundation are to provide financial support for young people living on the Isle of Wight in order that they may participate in education or acquire vocational skills that they could not otherwise afford and without which they cannot develop the capabilities, competences and skills which will help their future prospects.
Working closely with schools and other organisations on the Island, the RYS Foundation will provide targeted help to train young people, enabling them to take up opportunities for which they would otherwise fail to qualify, helping them to get access to higher educational standards and so gain better quality employment predominantly in the marine industry.
