From their jobs page:
ActionQuest has been offering experiential and educational programs for teenagers since 1986. Over this time, we have taught thousands of teens to sail and scuba dive. All of our programs involve a combination of these sports along with water skiing, windsurfing, marine biology and ecology. These are the hard skills. More important are the soft skills that our students learn in the process of living and working together in small teams aboard a sailing vessel: Communication and leadership skills, personal effectiveness and integrity. Our philosophy is to educate, instruct and facilitate the development of both the hard and the soft skills, thereby arming our students with a new set of tools for the future.

Almost ready to join us this summer? Below are some important facts relative to participation and payment agreements that you should review prior to signing aboard.

About Your Participation...

ActionQuest programs are more than voyages with instruction in sailing and diving; they are a total educational experience. Participants arrive with the understanding that they will be part of the crew in training, ready to share the work of the yacht from maintenance to food preparation to navigation, and everything in between. Shipmates rotate positions of responsibility each day for variety and well roundedness. Evenings are largely devoted to program material aboard. These are dry ships — no alcohol or illegal drugs — and there can be no smoking for health and safety reasons. We expect all shipmates to maintain an atmosphere of respect and consideration. We will not tolerate actions or attitudes detrimental to group cohesion and spirit or the healthy and pleasant environment aboard. Additionally, we are a co-ed program. Girls live in separate cabins. Privacy is thus maintained even with ten to twelve students all living within 50 feet of each other! Much is gained simply from living closely and in cooperation. In short, we are conscious of our good reputation and maintain the tone of the program as one of positive, highly experiential, healthy, active fun.


Disclosure

I found out about actionquestion from their Google adsense ad on this site. Given how expensive these trips are, I want to state clearly that kidslike.info does not have any other relationship with them. I listed them because it sounds like an amazing international opportunity for a young person.
