    1. Tomorrows Ocean Stewards Ten Years of ONeill Sea Odyssey www.oneillseaodyssey.org

    2. ONeill Sea Odyssey engages youth with education in navigation, conservation, & marine science. The classroom is a 65-foot sailing catamaran, and a shore-side education center.

    3. Our mission is to provide a hands-on educational experience to encourage the protection and preservation of our living sea and communities. ONeill Sea Odyssey (OSO) is free, each class completes a community service project.

    4. Started in 1996 by Jack ONeill. Over 40,000 youth have participated. We will serve 180 school classes 5,400 kids this year.

    5. Population served: Mostly Monterey Bay, San Francisco Bay and portions of central valley.

    6. Adam Webster Memorial Fund serves the cognitively and physically challenged.

    7.

    8. Over 1,500 community service projects have been performed by OSO classes: beach clean-ups, riparian projects, recycling.

    9. OSO surveys students before and after program to measure changes in attitudes and behaviors towards the environment. Results indicate 95% students become stewards & advocates.

    10. Academic impact: In 2003 OSO worked for approval of Assembly Bill 1330, by then-Assemblymember Joe Simitian, to study the impact of outdoor education on academic achievement. The study found that low-income youth who attended outdoor education had science scores 27% higher than those who did not.

    11. OSO curricula is aligned with California state standards in physical science, life science, mathematics, physics, and literacy. One-day ocean field trip is augmented with ocean-based curricula we provide for each classroom.

    12. In 2002 OSO integrated OSO class data and curricula into www.oneillseaodyssey.org. 82% of teachers who use OSO utilize curricula from the web site in their classrooms.

    13. An independent evaluation in 2004-05 gave OSO 100% ratings for Overall learning experience.

    14. ONeill Sea Odyssey students have gone to the Maritime Academy, one is now an OSO instructor and others have gone on the study marine science.
