Pasaia (Basque Country)

Young Sailors

Marinel Gazteak (Young sailors) is an integrating project based in experience and cooperation and lies in a training course in sailing and traditional ship maintenance. In principle it is intended for the student body of the “curricular diversification” classes, in order to connect the world of work with the one of leisure, promoting the volunteering work and increasing personal motivation. This training emphasizes the notions of respect, cooperation and consensus; it encourages personal concession for the community, based on the responsibility of each act an individual commits; it also considers the cultural diversity of the pupils to be a good opportunity for opening to the world and for learning from and by the difference.
