WOMEN AT THE HELM INTERNSHIP Thursday 18th May 2023
SECOND STAR SAILING is announcing 2 more internship positions within our WOMEN AT THE HELM program 2023-2024! It is designed for enthusiastic Antiguan females willing to learn sailing and be closely involved in our sailing school’s day to day processes.
The internship program is developed to give the interns:
1. as much knowledge possible about sailing and the industry;
2. joining our RYA practical and theory courses;
3. being an essential part of our team on shore;
4. becoming the ambassador for women in sailing in Antigua.
By the end of the program, the interns will gain knowledge about a sailing organisation’s management, receive RYA sailing certifications, acquire practical skills on sailboat maintenance, have some racing practice, and most importantly become a member of the sailing community in Antigua and worldwide. The outcome of the program is individual and is directly linked to how much time and work you are committed to putting in.
We are interested in supporting enthusiastic women interested in making changes not only in their professional life, but also willing to make a difference in local community, educating, empowering, and inspiring other women from our beautiful island. We want this internship program to be an equal exchange: your motivation and passion will be fuelling the level of knowledge we will be able to give back. We are here to guide, help, become a platform for your sailing passion, ready to make a difference together! With this program, we wish to create an inclusive environment for local community,
We wish to decrease the stereotyped gender gap in the industry, and learn from each other. We hope the program will inspire local females to explore the growing sailing community in Antigua, meet likeminded women sailors, and embrace the opportunities that the program will bring along the way. May it become a new hobby, exciting career prospects in sailing, or even becoming an experienced racer in the future.
We are happy to welcome you on board for your first steps!
Female candidates who can apply: Citizens of Antigua and Barbuda over 18. You must be able to swim.
