"The perseverance in the face of adversity that I learned at Oakcliff has been a huge benefit in my life. I wouldn’t have felt comfortable putting so much on my plate had I not gone through the challenges I faced at Oakcliff."
Matthew Hersey2018 Acorn Graduate, Student at Northeastern University
"Oakcliff taught me a ton - It propelled my sailing to a whole other level. I was able to start offshore sailing, which is something I love and adore. Oakcliff taught me inner strength, and how to “just get stuff done,” which is something wildly valued in my line of work."
Ivy BinnsAcorn & Sapling Program Graduate, Senior Executive Assistant for VC Include
"Oakcliff definitely helped me earn my job at New England Boatworks. I gained a ton of experience in race prep and boatwork during my time as a Summer Sapling."
