The CYS is well known within the Community for its support of various initiatives, programmes and charitable causes.
Local charities such as Family Support Network, Rainbow Children's Home, VISAR, and the BVI Youth Sailing Team have all been beneficiaries of the Society's philanthropy.
The CYS and individual members are regular supporters of:
VISAR: Virgin Islands Search and Rescue, the officially recognised search and rescue service in the British Virgin Islands. It is a voluntary organisation dedicated to saving life at sea.
The Royal BVI Yacht Club Youth Sailing programme receives regular support from the CYS. They teach young people safe, courteous and enjoyable use of the waters. Their talented young sailors represent the BVI on the international sailing circuit. We are extremely proud of them.
Kats(Kids and the Sea) Swim: Promoting safety on and around the sea for young people. KATS water sports program offers swimming, sea skills, sailing, and scuba diving to BVI youth.
Green VI: Committed to creating a green and clean, healthy, and prosperous BVI, in which a balance is maintained between development and conservation of the natural environment.
PAW BVI: Aims to decrease the number of homeless, abandoned and unwanted dogs and cats by funding spaying and neutering of stray animals and "owned" animals whose owners can't afford to have it done privately. PAW has a network of volunteer fosterers who fill in the gap until homes can be found or they can be sent to rescue partners in the USA.
