"Every junior sailor knows that they have to be able to swim, wear a personal floatation device, and stay calm in an emergency. However, what they don't know is how to prevent skin cancer. I have been a life-long sailor and I have seen first-hand the impact of the sun, having lost a close friend to melanoma.”
Susan Epstein, US SAILING Director

US SailingOur mission is to teach children, as well as the people who care for them, about sun protection and skin cancer prevention. Since parents, lifeguards, camp counselors, and others are not typically present in the school setting we adapt the SunAWARE for Life Program for community events. During the busy seasons, we provide programs in parks, at beaches, recreational centers, businesses, and dozens of other venues. Our highly skilled and experienced SunAWARE educators, along with staff, trained volunteers, and board members participate in dozens of events where we provide small programs or one-to-one counseling. We have partnered with both local and national organizations to reach parents, administrators, outdoor workers, indoor workers, tourists, runners, golfers, sailors and others in their community. Some of our community partners include: Boston Harbor Now, US SAILING, Discovery Camp, Perkins School for the Blind, Neutrogena, and Snapper Rock. These long-term alliances have developed into some of our most impactful partnerships, as they have provided us with great opportunities and venues, as well as volunteers, product giveaways, and dedication to our mission. If you are interested in becoming a partner contact our office for more information.
