K1's Second Chance Program - International Maritime Apprenticeship

UK Apprenticeship Program

One of the most effective ways to truly give youth a second chance, is to send them abroad for an apprenticeship program, where they are given a clean slate and a fresh start in a new environment that is conducive to growth in a new way.

In 2018, for the first time, we have arranged for one of our youths to study internationally. He is now in England completing a one-year apprenticeship program in boatbuilding and other maritime skills, and has been doing excellently since starting. His course began on April 9th 2018. He will bring back with him specialized skills which aren’t currently taught on the island. Our hope is that with the experience gained from this pilot program that we will be able to send more youth abroad in the following years for similar programs.
