THE YOUTH CREW PROGRAM
In 1998, Captain Jim Gladson and Alice Robinson, co-founders of the Los Angeles Maritime Institute, created a youth crew volunteer program. Recognizing that young men and women relate best to others in their age group, they established this now-vital component of LAMI’s mission.
Youth who have participated in the TopSail Youth Program, either with their school, Scout, Guide, church or other young people’s organization, are invited to return on weekends or “after hours” to develop their skills and nourish the sense of empowerment that they first discovered aboard ship. We also welcome those from the community we serve even if they were not previously involved in the formal programs.A schedule of instruction and “hands on” participation in sailing one of LAMI’s “tall ships” is offered on a regular basis. As members of the youth crew develop their maritime skills, they are invited to return as volunteer crew for weekend day sails and even longer voyages.
To provide a forum where youth can continue to overcome the challenges they face daily as they encounter life’s changes.
To provide an environment for critical thinking and decision making while empowering these Youth for success in School and Life.
All youth who demonstrate the need and keen interest in expanding their empowerment as a Youth Volunteer Mentor in TopSail Program are welcome.
The Youth Crew Program is designed to develop:
B. Development of vital decision making skills;
C. Instill a sense of responsibility;
D. Encourage resourcefulness;
E. Develop problem solving capabilities;
F. Promoting self-motivated leadership;
G. Demonstrating the value and power of teamwork;
H. Development of organizational skills;
K. Focus on the importance of education in their future;
L. Development of sailing skills;
M. Development of safety awareness;
N. Provide an introduction to the maritime industry as an option for career development.
