The EYC Foundation served over 800 youth in 2016! Wow and huge Thank You to all of our donors and volunteers for helping us make this happen! The excitement started with our annual Marine & Maritime Career Fair in February, which hosted 440 students and parents. From April to July, our “STEM through Sailing & Boating” program reached 375 students through our local Eastport/Annapolis elementary schools, the Calvert Marine Museum and the Anne Arundel County Adaptive Camp.
Junior Sailing Scholarships were awarded to 21 youths in our community ($7K) and our Marine & Maritime Scholarships were awarded to seven high school graduates ($14K) to pursue a college or trades education. The Back Creek Conservancy received a $500 Community Grant for a summer intern program. The grant was the result of BCC attending our 2016 Career Fair and then working with one of our current Scholarship recipients, Ryan Beveridge who is studying Engineering/Water Resources at the University of Maryland. The COMMUNITY GRANTS Program remains open until December 31.
The EYCF Board of Directors says "Thank You" to donors that contributed in the memory of EYC Past Commodore Rick Jackson. Click here to read more.
