Youth Maritime Collaborative of Seattle

Career Connected Vision for Maritime
The maritime industry in the Puget Sound region is expecting a high percentage of its work force to retire over the next five to ten years. Recruiting young workers to replace those who will retire has been challenging. Our region is at near full employment and current and future workers have a wide range of job and career options. The maritime industry offers competitive pay and benefits, but many youth, in particular low income youth and youth of color, have a low level of awareness regarding opportunities in the industry. The Youth Maritime Collaborative (YMC) was formed in order to meet this need.
