  • Project Description

    New Venture

    The Wayfinders program is an innovative approach to alternate energy education. It involves a group of youth using only the power of their bodies on land and the wind on board a schooner to transport a load of South Shore produced cargo to Halifax to sell at market. By modelling change in the shipping of goods, participants learn that change is possible within their own lives.  More information: https://windship.ca
