The purpose of the Surf Mentor Program is to improve happiness and quality of life through (1) fostering a feeling of inclusiveness, community, and personal accomplishment; and (2) enhancing the connection between community lifestyle (surfing and fishing) and environment (the importance of respecting environmental resources). This will be achieved through combining a surfboard workshop with an environmental awareness program.
