Maritime job skills for youths


The Hull Lifesaving Museum received a $7,500 grant last month from the Lenny Zakim Fund to support the museum’s Maritime Apprentice Program. The program, which is based in Boston’s Marine Industrial Park, provides intensive skills training and counseling for youths in the custody of the Department of Youth Services. “It’s crazy, brilliant, innovative, and effective, and we’re very proud to be associated with it,” said Jude Goldman, executive director of the Zakim fund. She said the fund gave $410,000 in 56 grants to organizations in eastern Massachusetts, with the greatest concentration going toward work with youths and youth violence prevention.
