Impact

Our commitment to our team is that there will be no more impactful place to work with society’s hardest to reach teens. If you are true about wanting to get into the trenches and make a real and lasting impact in a child’s life, this is the place to do it.

Shared Responsibilities

Our teams are cross-integrated and we all share in each other’s roles. Some days you are teaching algebra and some days you’re being the tough dad. You might be counseling on addiction in the morning, and in the afternoon you’re teaching sailing.

Family, Not Colleagues

As we work to build a family atmosphere around the young people we serve, we wrap the same love and care around our people. This work is hard. It’s important to do it with people who have your back.

About Us
SailFuture was founded in 2013 as an after school mentoring program for high-risk teens. It was meant to be a college project, not an organization. Since then we’ve grown into a modest-sized child welfare agency with three houses, a school, a handful of large sailing vessels, and multiple departments. Every step of the way, our growth was a product of our shortcomings.

We made great progress with students on week-long sailing journeys, but they returned to the same chaotic home that led them to instability and crime. In response, we opened a home to ensure that they had a permanent and stable place to live. Our students attended traditional public schools, but they skipped class and were suspended or expelled regularly. We recognized that the schools weren’t designed to meet their unique emotional and academic needs. Rather than blaming our kids, we opened our own school.

We wake up every day and ask ourselves how we can do better. Our philosophy is rooted in the belief that the teens we serve have the potential to be great, and achieve whatever it is they desire.

We recognize that their failures or shortcomings are just as much a product of the trauma they’ve experienced as they are a product of the broken system that’s supposed to help them heal.

We’re looking for people to join our team who share these beliefs and are willing to do whatever it takes for the young people we serve.
