‍There are more than 800 hours of training where our trainees develop their competencies for the labor world and augmenting their sea literacy.

Crescer pelo Mar (Growing by the Sea) is a project that aims to train young adults from the Algarve in the nautical field, taking advantage of our geographical and weather characteristics, plus, the enormous variety of maritime activities available in the market. The main purpose is to develop training activities with teenagers and young adults, with learning difficulties or from a complex social and economical background.

Regarding the specific purposes, this project intends to provide professional qualifications in jobs related to the sea.

Other goals of this project:

- improve personal and social skills to minimize the negative impacts of the social and economical background

- promote a sustainable approach to the maritime resources through nautical leisure activities
