Donate your time

Whilst developing ATYLA’s project we realised that there were many individuals who wanted to sail with us and, although not eligible for a scholarship, lacked the funds to afford a voyage. There are also people that would like to collaborate with our project, but can’t make money donations.

One of ATYLA’s core values is inclusivity. So, in order to include these two groups of people we created “the ATYLA network”: a team of collaborators who use their time, knowledge, and/or skills to help our not-for-profit organisation and educational mission to develop and expand.

In exchange they receive:

  • The satisfaction of belonging to ATYLA and supporting its mission
  • Living on board for free during the off-season time
  • Discounts on voyages onboard and even free voyages
  • A refund on a past voyage
  • The opportunity to donate their contribution as Trainee Scholarships

We invite you to join the ATYLA network!

There are plenty of tasks that you can help with, a few common examples are:

Promoting ATYLA and getting more people to sail with us
Finding funds and collaborators
