Welcome to the inaugural Tall Ships America Mentorship Program. We want to help you move forward in your professional sailing career. This is open to all current Tall Ships America members.  Not a member? Become one now!

The mentorship program helps Tall Ships America members as they navigate the requirements needed for an original license, to renew for the first time, upgrade their license, or apply for a medical certificate.

Acting as a guide to the real world, mentors have the opportunity to encourage and advise mentees by sharing their own experiences and knowledge of the maritime industry. This creates a culture of continuous learning, individual development and knowledge transfer.

The Tall Ships America Mentorship Program is a three to four month long professional development opportunity for individuals. In this inaugural year, mentees are paired with mentors who they feel is a best fit for them and 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 three month mark to check in, share successes, and discuss challenges.

Missed the deadline for application? We are planning to offer this program twice a year so stay tuned for the next open round of applications.
