We are thrilled and grateful to be the cover story for the local magazine’s latest issue!

Take a look/read it here as Captain Bruce Heyman and others talk about how we inspire local youth and families on our tall ships, including Ella Momeny, who is featured in our recent 32nd anniversary campaign. The article also features our upcoming Festival of Sail at LA Fleet Week; the exciting developments at the LA Waterfront; some of our amazing partners, including West Harbor, Port of Los Angeles, and Marathon Petroleum; Bruce’s involvement in the San Pedro community over his last 10 years with LAMI, including his role at the San Pedro Chamber of Commerce; and more about our many impactful programs.

The issue also features photos by John Mattera Photography, Arturo Garcia-Ayala and JoAnne Custer. We are so grateful to Publisher/Editor-in-Chief Joshua Stecker, writer Julia Murphy, and everyone else who had a hand in this!
