Salish Offers Opportunity to Explore Marine Careers in Dockside Programs
In the fall and winter of 2017, Salish led several dockside marine education programs aboard the organization’s new vessel Elettra III. The focus of these programs is to give area youth the chance to explore marine careers and skill development in three primary areas: science, technology and trades.
The first program was piloted in late summer with interns from the Port of Seattle as part of Salish’s involvement with the Youth Maritime Collaborative. Port interns conducted oceanographic sampling and toured ship’s systems aboard Elettra, listened to a presentation by naval architect firm Elliott Bay Design Group, and toured Ballard’s Pacific Fishermen Shipyard.
The program was captured in a spotlight piece (below) for Raising Hands, an annual event hosted by The Tulalip Tribes Tulalip Cares to honor recipient charities in different community impact categories.
