team.jpg

Spring is coming to Cape Town and we are gearing up to kick off our biggest ocean season yet!

17 -19 August we ran a full weekend course for 20 new coaches. We’re so ready to kick off our spring ocean workshops next month. As you know, we work with taking Grade 7 students out of school to the beach for two days: combining marine biology lessons with rockpool explorations, beach cleanups and conservation teaching and of course... snorkeling!

The next few months will see I AM WATER run 30 (!!) 2-day workshops for Grade 7 students from low income communities along our coastline - that’s over 700 kids getting to see beneath the surface for the very first time!

If you are in Cape Town and want to become an I AM WATER Coach - please email us at info@iamwaterfoundation.org and if you're an international interested in working with us, please look at our I AM WATER Ocean Leaders Internship Program online application form

It’s a revolution...' Read more on the Parley website.
