Adopt-A-Class

Our Adopt-A-Class program enables underserved students from Title I schools across California, to visit the Ocean Institute for hands-on STEM education. The Adopt-A-Class program is crucial to give these students the opportunity to take their learning beyond the classroom. The program is truly life changing for these students, as many have never seen the ocean, or been on a boat before.

With your generosity, underserved students from Title I Schools in San Diego, Orange and Los Angeles Counties will have an opportunity to learn marine science, maritime history and study the ocean environment while having fun! The cost of $2,500 funds program fees for up to 45 underserved students plus bus transportation. 

Any amount contributed makes a difference!
