Spirit of America 2017

Over the past 20 years, the Spirit of America Foundation has provided America’s premier youth boating education programs to tens of thousands of young people in 22 locations around the country. Since 2014, they have partnered with the YMCA to offer the program here in Ashtabula County. Once students earn their Ohio Boater Education Certificate, they will move on to learning, hands-on, how to safely and properly operate all kinds of watercraft including canoes and kayaks, powerboats, sailboats and jet skis. At the end of the program, students will spend a day on a large vessel with the Coast Guard.
