MIASF teaches teachers

ADVERTISEMENT

The Marine Industries Association of South Florida (MIASF) took about 45 local high school teachers on a tour of a shipyard and Ft. Lauderdale’s New River in August in an effort to help them see the high-wage jobs the industry provides so they can steer more young people to careers with boats.

The teachers are from Dillard High School and the field trip included a tour of Roscioli Yachting Center.

“The tour will help Dillard teachers inspire and prepare students to pursue well-paying jobs, careers, and professions that are in high demand,” said Steven Wasserman, interim chairman of the Council for Educational Change, which partners business executives with principals to help prepare the future workforce. “This experience will help teachers design a curriculum in their classroom that will guide the students’ career and professional paths in the technical, health and science, marine, and other growing industries in South Florida.”

The field trip will include a panel discussion with industry experts.

“We are excited to show this group of influencers the marine industry job opportunities that are available, and share information that these jobs typically pay 28 percent higher than the state average,” Smith said.
