Celebrating and strengthening the local character of Royal Docks London, Atlantic Pacific will build a space, located near the Dockside, to reinvigorate the area with young people learning about boats, search and rescue, nautical theory and basic seamanship. Giving this unused space a lease of new life, AP will install a containerised unit that will serve as an office, training area and workshop for our boats, which will in turn offer opportunities for the local youth of Newham and Greenwich to build their skills and knowledge in all things nautical. This is a creative way to engage with the local youth community, offering opportunities for young people to learn specific skills that can not only lead to employment, but also build communication and team building skills as well as confidence. AP at Royal Docks will be welcome to anyone who wants to come and learn more about search & rescue as well as a hub for a new sea-faring community to gather around.

What we'll deliver:

  • a place for young people to come and learn new skills
  • a place for young people to build their confidence

Why it's a great idea:

AP at Royal Docks London has been specifically designed to create an environment to attract local young people to come and learn different skills that traditional mainstream education. We know that offering these practical and physically challenging skills will enhance any young persons life, including their confidence and communication skills. AP at Royal Docks London will also link our new members with ideas around employment within the search and rescue and emergency industry, giving them information about other career paths and employment within this sector. AP will also recruit and train local young people over the age of 18 to become our own instructors for the programme, which will entail teaching young people not only local to Royal Docks, but also internationally. AP @ Royal Docks London will also boost the local business and economy by working in tandem with existing providers in the area to encourage the young people to participate in their programmes.
