Investing in our Community’s Future
One of the Port’s most rewarding and impactful programs involves engagement with local youth and academia. The Port’s aim is to educate youth about global trade and introduce them to the exciting opportunities in the global supply chains. Many of the Port’s interns and youth are pursuing higher education and maritime-related career paths as a result of their participation in the Port’s educational programs – a true testament to the partnership the Port has built with local students, colleges and K-12 school districts.
