At Captains Without Borders, our goal is to empower the next generation of seafarers by providing them with the opportunities they need to succeed and thrive in their careers. We believe that a diverse, equitable, and inclusive maritime industry is essential for creating a sustainable future. That's why our organization is committed to reducing barriers to entry for aspiring mariners from all backgrounds, helping them acquire the skills and experience necessary to thrive in the maritime sector.
Our mission is to provide educational and professional opportunities to underrepresented communities, including minorities, women, and economically disadvantaged cadets. By offering financial assistance and industry connections, we help these cadets succeed and launch their careers. Through partnerships with industry leaders and mentorship programs, we support diverse and talented seafarers who reflect the global nature of the industry and its vital importance to communities worldwide.
Our ultimate goal is to contribute to a thriving and equitable maritime industry that serves the needs of all stakeholders. By fostering a more diverse and talented workforce of highly qualified mariners, we aim to help the global shipping industry meet the evolving demands of the 21st century. We invite you to join us in our mission to empower the next generation of seafarers and build a brighter future for the maritime industry.
