Operating Partners

We are delighted to partner with CPY, The Wahine Project, and Salud y Cariño for our first year of pilot programs. Together we have established solid curriculum and operating partnerships that are positively impacting kids and making a difference.

CPY was created in 1991, when promising Seaside High student athlete Ramon Avila was tragically killed during an alleged drug deal. Community leaders vowed to find a solution to spiking crime in the neighborhood and its effects on their most vulnerable children and youth.

We’re a global community that believes everyone deserves access to the ocean. We’re reshaping the landscape of equity in ocean recreation and stewardship.

Salud y Cariño opens doors for girls to take action and gain confidence through physical activity and healthy choices to live their best lives now and in the future!

In addition to our operating partners, we are deeply grateful for our corporate partners AtreNet and Sprout Solutions. We also thank our grant partners in Community Foundation of Santa Cruz, and The Nell Newman Foundation.
