Join or Renew Your LAMI Membership for 2020

RENEW or ACTIVATE a LAMI membership and join our dedicated and passionate tall ship family, enjoy exclusive discounts and offers, and INSPIRE the leader in EVERY YOUTH.

This year we are making our membership better than ever with new levels and great new incentives. If you are able, now is the time to upgrade to have an even more meaningful impact and earn member-only benefits.

For all of you who have donated since the COVID-19 March 14 “Safer-At-Home” orders, LAMI is automatically making you a member at the level of your support with an option to upgrade to any level you prefer!

So while we respectfully distance for everyone’s well being, PLEASE consider coming together and JOIN as a LAMI Member to give young people an extraordinary adventure of learning, discovery, hope, connection, and transformation that can only happen at sea aboard a tall ship!

Take good care and stay healthy. We look forward to all of you sailing with us again soon. Fair Winds!
