Port, Long Beach Unified launch maritime career pathway for high school students

To prepare students for careers in the maritime industry, the Port of Long Beach and Long Beach Unified School District recently launched a career pathway at a local high school.

The initiative, based at Jordan High School, comes amid a tumultuous time for the maritime industry globally, as supply chain shortages affect ports around the world. In the high school academy, students will gain experience in advanced manufacturing, maritime engineering and construction.

“We have a responsibility to help educate the goods-movement workforce of the future, and we’d like to see our Long Beach-area students have every opportunity to be part of that,” Long Beach Harbor Commission President Steven Neal said.
