Junior Membership Program

The Junior Membership Program (JMP) is a fun way to get involved with and learn more about the exciting marine industries. Sponsored by Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County (MIAPBC), the JMP is offered to students grades 9-12 as an after-school, extracurricular activity. Events will be held one Saturday per month throughout the 2016 school year, some of which will be eligible for community service hours. Junior Members will get unique opportunities to participate in the Palm Beach International Boat Show, Palm Beach Holiday Boat Parade, and a special career fair. They will gain one-of-a-kind exposure to key segments, businesses and people within the marine industries. Junior Members will get the opportunity to take a safe boating class and earn a boater’s safety card. This is a great way to build your resume and reference list for those college and job applications.
