Kaliana Program

Kaliana means “calm seas” and teen boys who participate in this experiential treatment and residential therapy program engage in rehabilitation on land and also on board a sailing vessel. Participants in the Kaliana Program go on day, weekend and 6-day voyages throughout the islands, then return to the home port and the 6-acre residential facility. The ocean experience helps troubled teens build life skills and overcome challenges while learning lessons on ocean sailing while becoming part of a team. The program is designed to help teenage boys who struggle with behavior disorders and those with chemical dependencies. Kaliana Program also provides academics for participants and counseling, beyond the ocean experiences.
