Ocean Minds is a non-for-profit organisation that helps local young people who are experiencing personal difficulties. Using mentoring and surfing, the program aims to help them feel more accepted, confident and comfortable in their lives. Geelong Port is a major sponsor of Ocean Minds and has provided them with equipment and a vehicle to enhance the program.
This is an important display of the role of Ports in our communities. As employers and suppliers, Ports care about the wellbeing of their local area and are able to create valuable partnerships. Geelong Port takes its responsibility to society seriously as a proud sponsor of Ocean Minds.
Geelong Port’s support of Ocean Minds displays the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:
3- Good Health and Wellbeing
17- Partnerships for the Goals
