The Grand Hosts “The Eastern Maine Young Skippers Program- Final Assembly!”

ELLSWORTH- On Thursday, May 25th at 5 pm, The Grand is happy to be hosting “The Eastern Maine Young Skippers Program – Final Assembly” presented by Maine Center for Coastal Fisheries. Admission for this event is free and the public is invited.


The Young Skippers Program is innovative, project-based program and designed to strengthen the secondary student’s engagement in learning the economic impact on Maine’s coastal economy. A regional school program built in and reaching students in their own communities, their core goal is to create a promising model for implementing such an innovative program in rural schools. The program is designed to engage and inspire prospective commercial fishermen and others interested in marine careers. The focus is on the core knowledge and skills needed to be successful in the Gulf of Maine in the 21st century. A good high school education, critical thinking skills, business and fishing skills, a solid grounding in fishery science and stewardship; all are essential to Maine’s fisheries and fishing communities in the future. Come and see for yourself at the program’s final assembly at The Grand. The schools participating include Vinalhaven, Deer Isle Stonington High School, George Stevens Academy, Ellsworth High School,  MDI High School, Narraguagus High School and Jonesport Beals High School.
