Youth Afloat


  • Laburnum Boat Club

Project summary

The Laburnum Boat Club is a community-based boating project by the Regents Canal in south Hackney. It is a voluntary organisation managed by local people and it aims to provide opportunities for the personal development of children, young people and their families in the local community. Youth Afloat will engage young people (aged nine to 19) with a programme of formal and informal activities designed to improve their overall physical wellbeing, enhance their understanding of good health and introduce them to the scientific research methods used to explore these topics. This project aims to provide transferable skills in scientific enquiry and the exploration of evidence.
