OUR MISSION

We Care and Friends is dedicated to supporting the building blocks to create strong families and communities in areas affected by drugs, poverty, and crime in Annapolis and Anne Arundel County, Maryland.

School on the Water for Kids

School on the Water provides  Anne Arundel County children 7 to 16 years old, who are at risk for failure in school or socially, with learning, mentoring and fun experiences on the waters surrounding Annapolis, Maryland.  What started as an eight week summer program has now been extended to the full year.

Through their experiences in School on the Water, students:

  • improve their respect for themselves and others, making them better citizens, family members and students
  • learn about boating and water safety on the Chesapeake Bay and other local waters
  • become better stewards of their local environment
  • improve their social, behavioral, and academic skills through mentoring and tutoring
  • participate in etiquette classes related to all aspects of life
  • expand their education with field trips beyond their communities

School on the Water aims to have students participate in school prepared to learn, motivated, inspired by their experiences and eager to follow their dreams.
