Sea The World Storefront Introduces Youth to Marine Industry Careers

Last week, representatives from 23 marine industry companies based in South Florida gathered at JA World Huizenga Cener at the Lillian S. Wells Pavilion to celebrate the unveiling of the collaborative Sea The World storefront in JA Finance Park.

"As an owner/operator of a small business invested in the maritime world, I've seen first hand how difficult it is to find skilled labor to meet our business growth," said Christine Battles, CAO, Advanced Mechanical Enterprises/AMESOLUTIONS.COM
"Our industry is a gold mine of opportunities for the next generation. I've made a personal commitment to inspire their interest in our field, which, will in turn, maintain the maritime industry as a thriving economic force in the state. Our JA storefront is a major step towards fulfilling this initiative."
