Empowering our students by providing life enrichment activities and educational support

We are a service organization based in Huntington Beach, California. Our goal is simple - to provide opportunities to local kids and young adults so that they have a chance for a successful life! The ocean is our playground and many of our activities are based on the enjoyment and learning that come from this vast and wonderful resource. Please enjoy your visit with us!

"One ship sails East,
And another West,
By the self-same winds that blow,
'Tis the set of the sails
and not the gales,
That tells the way we go."
- Ella Wheeler Wilcox, Poet and Journalist (1851-1919)

In other words, our lives should be characterized by the choices we make. El Viento is designed to help "our kids" make wise choices.
