The Youth Forum
We sat in a Youth Forum where there were many opportunities go on voyages during the summers and throughout the year. One of the organizations you can work with is the Philadelphia Ship Preservation Guild which exposes you to the tallship Gazela and the tug Jupiter. Mystic seaport offers summer programs aboard the schooner Brilliant. The U.S. Brig Niagara offers programs to youth so you can work your way up in the ranks of the crew from apprentice to an able-bodied seamen. These are all really great opportunities for youth, they help you meet new people and give you a path into the maritime industry. I'm glad I was able to attend the forum.
