Cardboard Boat Regatta Makes a Splash!

Compass Project's First Annual Cardboard Boat Regatta was a huge hit, filling Portland's Eastern Prom with 18 boat building team and more than 100 spectators who came to watch the races. In just a few hours, teams of families, friends and colleagues turned sheets of cardboard into amazingly creative vessels and took to the high seas for some adventure.  Click here to read more about this wonderful day spent spreading the word about Compass Project, building community and getting seriously wet!

Man with boat.
Founded in 2002, Compass Project has been serving the youth of Maine for more than a decade. Each of our kids is charting his/her own course through obstacles in school and life. Using boat building and on the water programs, we help young men and women develop academic and workplace skills, as well as self-confidence and pride. We hope our story will inspire you to get involved. Indeed, we believe Compass Project kids are truly inspirational!
