Inspiring the Youth of Tomorrow to Explore Innovative Careers in Maritime

13th June 2023

As the school season ends, GMT would like to highlight a local corporate social responsibility initiative: the Junior Achievement of South Florida Marine Industry Storefront, Sea the World, which was first introduced back in 2019 by a select group of founding members.

Sea the World is composed of nine walls representing engine room specialists, yachting professionals, shipyard trade workers and other areas like marina management, boat sales, boat building and maritime travel to name a few.

We’re happy to share some photos of the storefront that showcases what we have accomplished this year with our other JA Sea the World Partners in cultivating a space that exposed 22,000 students, just this year, to the marine industry.

Through our collective efforts, and the monies donated, we have created a platform that enables these students to explore the marine industry, encouraging them to unlock their full potential in an industry they may have not even considered a possibility.

Tim Davey, Managing Director of GMT and one of the Sea the World Founding Members is “elated to see the positive impressions we are creating in the minds of tomorrow’s workforce.”

This past school year, Junior Achievement created a pre-apprenticeship program for 12th graders for both the maritime and construction industries. So far, nearly 70% of the students in the program are interested in going into the maritime direction. This is an exciting new program and is continually being developed.

Supporting the Maritime Industry through Travel

Moving a group of workers, large or small to and from a vessel or shipyard requires an extremely high level of coordination with a competent travel management company.  Global Marine Travel has decades of experience working with travelers on vessels in various industries – commercial shipping, offshore oil & energy sectors, cruise lines, superyachts, drydock, corporate and specialized marine contracting.

“There is a plethora of marine-related careers available right here in South Florida. It’s time we introduce new generations of youth to the many aspects of the maritime industry – which believe it or not, includes travel,” said Tim Davey, Founder and Managing Director of GMT.

Global Marine Travel’s niche specialty is to provide travel management services to all types of maritime workers, including but not limited to:

  • Able bodied seafarers and officers working onboard any marine vessel
  • Commercial shipping crew and associated technicians traveling to/from a vessel or port for purposes of employment
  • Cruise line employees working in any capacity onboard including concessions who appear on the vessel crew manifest
  • Renewable Energy Sector such as wind/wave farms and solar fields, whether land based or offshore
  • Dry dock workers including installers, surveyors, architects, divers, HVAC, etc
  • Technical representatives
  • Engineers
  • Concessions
  • And more!

Careers in the maritime industry offer a vast array of opportunities for individuals seeking adventure, professional growth, and a meaningful connection to the world’s oceans. Whether you are drawn to seafaring, shipbuilding, marine engineering, or maritime law, this industry provides a diverse range of roles that combine tradition with innovation.

With the world’s reliance on maritime trade and the ever-growing demand for sustainable solutions, the maritime sector promises exciting prospects for those who are passionate about the sea, and it starts with nonprofit organizations like Junior Achievement’s Sea the World storefront to give students in South Florida the chance to contribute to future global commerce, explore new horizons, and play a vital role in shaping the future of this dynamic and vital sector.
