Investments in Education at Crystal Cove

Help Crystal Cove Alliance invest in tomorrow’s environmental stewards by supporting our new Sustain Our Students (S.O.S.) scholarship program!  Over 60% of the students who participate in CCA’s education programs come from underserved areas with under-resourced schools. For many, their visit to Crystal Cove is their first opportunity to experience California’s coast or get out on the water.

The Sustain Our Students program is designed to give back to our generous donors while giving  teachers and students access to Crystal Cove Alliance’s inspirational educational programs.
