PRINCES TRUST TO HELP JOBLESS YOUTH SAIL

A former Princes Trust director has stated that he believes sailing schools can offer jobless youngsters some hope.

Richard Thornton, who was Operations Director for the youth charity Fairbridge and is now CEO of the Isle of Wight-based UKSA, said, ”At a time when youth unemployment continues to climb and the future can appear bleak for a whole generation of young people, there is an ever greater need for organisations like UKSA.”

With the recent merger of both organisations Mr Thornton will take up his new role in June this year.

He added, 'The support they provide genuinely creates exceptional opportunities for young people to move towards a brighter future. It is essential work and I am privileged to be part of it.'

The UKSA - a youth education and maritime training charity is focused in four key areas: non-standard education for school-age children, adventure and personal challenge, building essential life and work skills, and training for maritime employment.
