LOS ANGELES MARITIME INSTITUTE
August 28, 2014

I've been volunteering for LAMI for over 4 years now and have found my time there to be an extremely rewarding experience, not only for myself but for the results I've seen with the youth the program serves. I really appreciate that I can learn to sail a tall ship and also help under-served youth in my spare time; even if I'm unable to regularly participate, the crew is patient with me and meets me where I am to continue my education. Being "part of the crew" is an amazing feeling!

I've also learned (and/or re-learned) the life skills that are being taught to the kids that come aboard the ships for this life-changing experience: teamwork, listening, challenging oneself on every level, and maritime skills such as navigation, physics of sail, mechanics, etc... and then there is the serenity you experience when you are under sail, gliding across the ocean with the wind through your hair, perhaps spotting wildlife such as dolphins, whales and sea lions, that really helps put everything into perspective. Thank you, LAMI!

Their mission is so important, and they have great programs to support it. We really need to dispel ignorance and promote tolerance!

The volunteers get as much out of this as the kids do!
