BV is proud to be sponsoring the One and All – a non-profit organization on a mission to engage young people in seafaring.
The One and All is a vintage-style tall ship built and run by volunteers and berthed in Port Adelaide, Australia. The vessel is used to provide sailing training and experiences to the younger generation, vulnerable people and members of the wider public. The organization notably supports people at the start of their maritime career offering valuable youth development programs, hands-on industry experience and cadetship programs.
Commissioned in 1987, One and All has been serving the local community for over 36 years. Approximately 10,000 students have been involved in its unique youth development programs to date.
An organization aligned with Bureau Veritas’ values
The collaboration with One and All was sparked by a BV offsite event in November 2022 Our Australia and New Zealand teams spent an afternoon sailing aboard the One and All and were inspired by the ship’s worthy cause, and our shared goals. Senior management welcomed the opportunity to back a charity aligned with BV’s industry and values and support the next generation of seafarers.
