Is Maritime education failing in the Caribbean?
Absolutely not. In fact, students are attracted to the industry disproportionately more than to other industries in the region. And for good reason. With companies like Royal Caribbean that have made a huge commitment to the region, job opportunity is plentiful both in the cruise and cargo sectors. And, the ACMF is helping to do its part to provide educational opportunity for future mariners.
Happy new year, Friends and Colleagues.
The ACMF is looking forward to many exciting undertakings as we remain focused on our mission of “alleviating poverty and transforming lives in the Caribbean through maritime education and community development.”
We funded scholarships for nine students last year from Jamaica, The Bahamas, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and we look forward to increasing that number in 2020.
We hosted a very successful Anchor Awards gala last October in New York. Check out the gala
