About 75 teenagers in foster care received an opportunity for internal growth and intentional play with a surf adventure on the Oregon Coast in late June. This experience is designed to assist Oregon’s foster youth in internal asset building, grit development, and confidence building. These attributes set the ground-work for effectively managing past circumstances and conquering future challenges.

2017 Surf Project aids them in their journey to re-claim their future as a positive, worthwhile path ahead.

Surf Project 2017 is brought to the community by a partnership between Oregon Surf Adventures, Alchemy Consultation and Training Services, and Department of Human Services Child Welfare in Oregon.
