Co-organised with the Singapore Maritime Academy (Singapore Polytechnic), the Maritime Youth Day was a full-day event held on 8 June 2015, Monday. The Maritime Youth Day is an initiative to raise awareness about maritime education and to encourage youth to pursue maritime careers. The event aims to encourage adventure-seeking Secondary School Scouts students to consider maritime education and careers in Polytechnics and Universities. This year, Scouts from various Secondary schools were invited for a day at Pulau Hantu and a dinner reception at Singapore Polytechnic – The Hall.
Two MaritimeONE scholars were also invited to the event to share about the maritime industry, their personal experiences and scholarships opportunities to the young Scouts.
