Mission Statement

Los Angeles Maritime Institute (LAMI) uses sail training to provide youth with real-life challenges that develop knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to live healthy, productive lives.

Description

TopSail Youth Program is an education and adventure experience aboard a tall ship consisting of day sails, voyages, or both. Skills gained include team-building, problem-solving, decision-making, planning, self-reliance and leadership.

A full program consists of a series of day sails scheduled over a period of several months. Each day’s activities build on the skills and knowledge gained during the preceding sailing days. Participants then utilize their new-found sense of empowerment and teamwork on the multi-day voyage where they sleep aboard and sail the vessel, prepare meals, determine each day’s activities and much more.
