Youth Programs: America's Cup Endeavor Program Comes to Chicago


The America’s Cup Endeavour Program is coming to Chicago! In partnership with the Chicago Park District and the Chicago Parks Foundation, this program will have the capacity to teach 300 children how to sail on Hobie Waves and experience Chicago’s greatest asset: Lake Michigan.

The America's Cup Endeavor Program will teach children ages 8-15 in Chicago through field trips, after school programs, and teen programs. The program will promote wider integration between teachers, students, and their families through exciting and specialized curriculum in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math, or "STEAM," and hands-on experiences through sailing - all linked with The Louis Vuitton America's Cup. 

Get involved with fundraising for this project! Join Don Wilson, the chairman of Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series Chicago, on April 27th for a Cocktail Reception, Dinner, and Program featuring Sir Russell Coutts – CEO, America’s Cup Endeavour as well as members of the ORACLE TEAM USA race team, and The America’s Cup Trophy at the Shedd Aquarium.

All proceeds of this event will go towards, and will provide essential financial support for the legacy of the AC Endeavour Program Chicago.
