Check out our GoFundMe campaign to support the Youth Action Project!
One People One Reef and Bluecology are creating a scholarship fund to support the Youth Action Project, and its mission of developing future leaders in ocean sustainability. Previous participants are already taking leadership roles in One People One Reef’s work, for example working with the science team on expeditions to other outer islands, and leading the first Youth Action Project on neighboring Woleai Atoll. Involving youth in this way – actively engaging them in critical aspects affecting the future of their natural and cultural environments – will foster strong, knowledgeable Ulithian leaders.
For 2019, we are seeking to raise $8,000. Costs for one Ulithian student to participate in the project are $1000. This covers leadership costs (both local and of the US based coral reef ecologist), transportation between the islands, meals, and project supplies.
