This is a very exciting program which has strong support from both government and maritime interests on the island. As with all at risk youth programs, one of the biggest challenges could be recruiting participants. But, we are fortunate to be aligned with the Bermuda Sloop Foundation, the owners and operator of the beautiful new sail training vessel, Spirit of Bermuda.
Stay tuned for regular reports about what’s new with Northeast Maritime Institute’s new Maritime Apprentice Training and Employment (MATE) program which will be offered to youth locally and internationally.
Here’s an informative video about the Spirit of Bermuda and the Bermuda Sloop Foundation.
