Leadership Program for Leading Crew & Leading Crew in Training

The Nova Scotia Sea School Leadership Program is designed to help keen students improve their leadership and seamanship skills.

The program includes three stages

 Leading Crew in Training

 Leading Crew

 Opportunities for students over 19 years old

Leading Crew in Training:
This program is for students between 14 and 16 years old who have demonstrated leadership skills or expressed interest in the program. The program is closely linked with the Leading crew program, is free of charge, but does not include a free trip.

Leading Crew:
This program is for students over 16 years old who have completed 3 sailing expedition trips and demonstrated an interest in improving their leadership and seamanship skills. As this is a position of significant responsibility, Leading Crew do not pay for their expeditions.

Opportunities for Students over 19 years old:
This program is for students who are too old to participate on Sea School expeditions for 14-18 year olds, but would like to further their leadership and marine training. The Sea School can assist students in finding marine opportunities such as crewing on sailing vessels and work with the Coast Guard Inshore Rescue. This program is designed to help students over 19 years old to gain the experience necessary to become a Sea School instructor or to meet their personal goals for marine training. Individuals who have not participated on sea school expeditions are also encouraged to contact us for information about how to become involved.
