Sentinel Ocean Alliance was founded to create Ocean based opportunities for the youth of Hout bay.
We aim to teach Basic Ocean and environmental skills to previously disadvantaged youth from the Hangberg and Imizamo Yethu communities. Using the Waves for Change program, Lifesaving, surfing and our Parley Ocean School, we hope to give the kids in these communities opportunities to better their lives and the lives of their family’s, introducing them to the Ocean Economy.
We have established a safe space where kids from these communities can safely learn, play and find future economic opportunities through the ocean. Whether it is from surfing, Lifesaving, mentorship or education about the environment, we want everyone to feel welcome and safe. We want people to come down and be inspired by the ocean and for those individuals to have a place of refuge.
A global network where creators, thinkers and leaders raise awareness for the beauty and fragility of the oceans.
