Los Angeles Maritime Institute (LAMI) uses educational experiences at sea to provide youth with real-life challenges that develop knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to live healthy, productive lives.

TopSail Youth Program takes place aboard the twin brigantines, Exy Johnson and Irving Johnson, the Official Tall Ships and Maritime Ambassadors of the City of Los Angeles.

Founded in 1992, Los Angeles Maritime Institute is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization serving the communities of San Pedro, Wilmington and all of Los Angeles.

TopSail partners include the Port of Los Angeles, numerous foundations, and individual donors.
