We are excited to announce that The Youth Maritime Collaborative will be partnering with Seattle Maritime Academy for the first annual “Try-a Trade” event in efforts to increase awareness and access to maritime career & educational pathways at Seattle Maritime Academy. Cohorts and classrooms from Seattle Public Schools will be introduced to a plethora of hands-on activity stations to interact with such as operating the Vessel Bridge Simulator, setting off flares, heaving lines, knot stations, maritime BINGO, tours of a tugboat, sessions on job pathways/sectors & salary potential and much more! Later in the afternoon, Nate Gilman Co-Founder of MMSEAS will have a Maritime Workforce station which will be aimed at (but not limited) to post highschool & adult students and parents/guardians who are interested in completing their USCG Physical, USCG drug test and their merchant mariner oath & notary all in one setting. If you are interested in attending, please reach out to us.
