Mentor Program for Licensing

Find your mentor to grow your maritime career!

The Tall Ships America Mentorship program is a three to four month long professional development opportunity for individuals. Mentees are paired with mentors who will help guide them through the licensing process and testing. Mentors and mentees will meet once a month for 1 hour, either virtually or face to face, and report back to the oversight committee. Mentees and Mentors are expected to spend at least one hour per month meeting with one another via in person, phone call, or video meetings such as Zoom.

We will have an all-hands meetings (one for the mentors and one for the mentees) at the two month mark to check in, share successes, and discuss challenges. Additional information about the mentorship program is here.

Am I eligible? Applicants must be a current member of Tall Ships America. Must be pursuing a license, renewal, upgrade, or medical certificate

Applications are taken on a rolling basis and space is limited. This program is a service to Tall Ships America members. Not a member? Become one now!
