STI Youth Council

The Sail Training International (STI) Youth Council was launched in March 2009. It comprises of representatives from nearly every one of Sail Training International’s 26 member national sail training organisations (NSTOs).

The main objectives of the Youth Council are to represent a youth voice in decision making within the sail training community and to inspire, support and promote the involvement of young people in all aspects of sail training. They also aim to support sail training communities in enabling young people to become active contributors. Through their discussions they create a positive environment for the exchange of ideas and innovations and to promote individual growth through international friendships and multicultural understanding.

They also support the development and growth of alumni groups within sail training organisations to expand the network of contact between those who have been, or may become, engaged in sail training.
