HRCS will host a gala at the New York Yacht Club's legendary Model Room from 6:00pm-8:30pm. Hors d’oeuvres and cocktails will be provided. --- Hudson River Community Sailing (HRCS), a leading charitable organization that develops leadership and academic success for underserved New York City youth through sailing education, and provides maritime education and recreation to the community at large, will host its largest annual fundraising event, Sailing for Scholars, on October 13-15 in New York. All proceeds from Sailing for Scholars directly support HRCS’s Youth Development programs, including Sail Academy, a four-year program that uses sailing and boat-building to teach math, science, and leadership to high school students. Concepts are taught on land and water using small-group, experiential learning. HRCS currently partners with nine New York City high schools to offer academic credit in math and science to students enrolled in Sail Academy. The academic curriculum is designed with New York City Department of Education teachers to support state standards. The organization has improved the lives of hundreds of students since its founding in 2007. The HRCS youth development programs also include internships, where students learn every aspect of running a commercial sailing school, preparing them with important job skills and career awareness.
