National Ocean Challenge Program in Alaska
Jul
7
to Jul 27

National Ocean Challenge Program in Alaska

“The ocean has been such a wonderful teacher for me in my life that I created the Ocean Challenge program to give young people the leadership training the ocean provides.”

— SUN MYUNG MOON

National Ocean Challenge Program (NOCP) 2019 is now taking applications for youth ages 16 to 30 with an adventurous spirit, eagerness to learn, and open minds. This is the 11th anniversary year for NOCP in Kodiak, AK, and they plan to make it the best year yet!

The National Ocean Challenge Program began as a grassroots project by a group of captains who did Ocean Challenge in Gloucester, MA back in the 1980s and 90s. Passionate to share the ocean challenge experience with the next generation, they created a program with the available Good-Go boats on Kodiak Island, a location where True Parents spent a lot of time fishing, and inaugurated the program in 2009 as its official first year.

Over the years, many volunteers, staff, leaders and sponsors have helped develop and cultivate this program, making it possible each year.

This year, the program will be the well-known 21-day length from July 7 to 27, where the youth and young adults will cover basic safety, boating, navigation, oceanology, and hiking the first few days, river and deep sea fishing for 14 days, and the last few days will conclude with a service project, city tour, talent show and graduation ceremony.

For those already experienced with boating and who want to pursue something more challenging, there will be a 40-day Captain-in-Training (CIT) program from June 29 to August 7. Those applying for this position need to be at least 18-years-old, must already have taken a USCG certified boating safety course and have done CPR/First Aid training. CITs will be learning boat care, minor boat repairs and maintenance, boat operation and navigation, fishing techniques, and the responsibilities expected of a captain.

This year, NOCP is looking for four team leaders who will work directly with the education coordinator to serve as an extension of their staff in an elder brother/sister role for a team of five participants.

The internal education during the time of the program will focus on teachings from True Parents, understanding the meaning of Hyojeong, and learning the different aspects of Ocean Providence. The three weeks will provide an opportunity to develop leadership skills, experience God’s love, and deepen our understanding of True Parents’ life course and our identity.

Why did True Father often go fishing?

“When I go out to fish in the ocean, I am actually fishing the world. It is for this purpose that I fish;
it is a condition of devotion. You too have to learn to love the ocean. The fastest way to focus your mind
is by fishing. I can say this from my own experience.”
(289-122, 1997/12/30)

The application deadline is May 5th with limited space and scholarships available.

CO-CREATORS: Young Adult Workshop 2019
Jan
4
to Jan 10

CO-CREATORS: Young Adult Workshop 2019

Discover what it means to build your core with God at this 18+ seven day DP-based Workshop!

What it’s about:

With the routineness of day to day life, it can sometimes be difficult to access that deeper part of ourselves that longs for drive in our spiritual life. Whether you are in college, on a gap year, or working, there is always value in taking adequate space to recenter upon what is most important. We want to explore the idea of being a co-creator in every part of our journey as 2nd gen- delving into our personal relationship with God, building communities together with God and understanding our Blessing journey as an endeavor beyond ourselves. We hope that this can be a space where we can honestly reflect about our lives, our communities, and our movement and gain clarity moving forward.

The Structure:

This is a 7 day DP-based workshop. Our main lecturer is Armando Lozano- a passionate, free thinker from Spain, who regularly shares his insights, applications of principle, and life experiences at workshops and programs for Second Gen in Europe. Each day of the workshop will be centered on a different daily theme, focused on developing our spiritual core, faith community, and relationship with God.

Location: Concord Retreat Center, Yellow Springs, West Virginia
(Address: 265 Concord Road, Yellow Spring, WV 26865)

  • Arrivals and Registration between 2-4pm on Jan. 4th, Departure 2pm on Jan. 10th

Pricing Deadlines:

  • $335 Early Bird 10/27- 11/22

  • $350 Normal 11/23- 12/10

  • $365 Late Bird 12/11- 12/25

*Note: payment must be submitted before each deadline to qualify as part of that payment period.

** In considering participation, please make effort to attend for the full 7 days as part-time attendance is limited and would interfere with the group experience.

(Once you register, we will email you about payment options)
