The Atlantic Youth Trust is a youth development and cultural integration charity that will deliver a world class educational programme on a purpose built tall ship. Young people from Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland will come together for exciting and challenging voyages.
Three years of local and international research and consultation has brought the Trust to where it is today. Twenty-five tall ship organisations, youth and educational experts, naval representatives, tourism professionals along with many others have been consulted. We are now confident we have the best long-term solution for the island based on the Spirit of Adventure Trust model in New Zealand. Learn more...
