Tall Ships Challenge®
Summer Internship Program
Each summer during the TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® Race Series, Tall Ships America offers a team of young people the opportunity to serve as interns with the Race Team. Throughout the course of the summer series, the interns assist the race director, work in the race office, man the information booths, interact with the participating vessels and their crews and trainees, the port organizers and volunteers, and represent Tall Ships America to the hundreds of thousands of people who come out to see the tall ships. And of course, sail! Long days and hard work are a part of the job – but so are enduring friendships and memories that will last a lifetime. Since the first TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® Series in the summer of 2001, young people from as far away as Japan and the United Kingdom, as well as Canada and the United States have had the chance to experience the CHALLENGE from this unique perspective.
