Youth at sea

At the school of life

The «Youth at sea» program

During this Arctic expedition, Mauritius welcomes teenagers or young adults within the framework of the socio-educational program “Youth at Sea”.

Conducted since 2009 by the Association Pacifique, this program consists of care, reception on board and post-navigation follow-up of adolescents in reintegration.

Aged 14 to 18, these young people take part in life on board and are supervised by shipboard educators.
