The requirements are –
There are a number of options a club has in obtaining a student to sponsor. We recommend the club does this themselves if possible.
All students benefit greatly from the challenges they face and overcome but we do see enormous changes for the better in the less confident and disadvantaged young people. For many their lives are reset on a much more positive course.
Each watch contains a mixture of students. The watch leaders are not given details of their students’ backgrounds and consequently treat all in exactly the same way. The students then treat each other as equals.
We would urge clubs to look for those young people who show promise but lack confidence and self-esteem. These are the students who will not themselves put their names forward to join the voyage. They are the ones who need a tap on the shoulder and a little encouragement to go.
