Leeuwin Ocean Adventure – Building Social Capital for Over 30 Years

A voyage on the tall ship Leeuwin, like life itself, is a great adventure. It provides an exhilarating hands-on experience while building life-skills, leadership and teamwork. For over 30 years, Leeuwin Ocean Adventure has provided young people from across Western Australia and beyond with an opportunity to build psychological skills – self-confidence, self-esteem and teamwork) and sociological skills (acceptance and co-operations of others). These skills contribute to the social capital and civic functioning of Western Australia.

Carol first sailed on Leeuwin in 1989 – sponsored by her employer Challenge Bank as part of a leadership development program. Carol saw the extraordinary impact of a week at sea on her fellow voyage-trainees and resolved that this was an organisation she wanted to be part of – no sailor then and no sailor now – Leeuwin Ocean Adventure for Carol is about the impact on young people and Leeuwin’s capacity to give young people the skills to make good choices in life to enable them to be better citizens.
