Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum awarded grant

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is pleased to announce that it has been awarded more than $30,000 in grant funds from the Rural Maryland Council (RMC) to support its Shipwright Apprentice Program.

CBMM is proud to be engaged in certified workforce training and has been operating a successful Shipwright Apprentice Program for more than 20 years, graduating more than 50 apprentices. In 2018, CBMM began offering a formal four-year apprentice certification, developed in line with U.S. Department of Labor Employment Training Administration Standards and registered with the Maryland Apprenticeship and Training Program, a division of Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing & Regulation’s Workforce Development and Adult Learning.

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to preserving and exploring the history, environment, and culture of the entire Chesapeake Bay region, and making this resource available to all.

Every aspect of fulfilling this mission is driven by CBMM’s values of relevance, authenticity, and stewardship, along with a commitment to providing engaging guest experiences and transformative educational programming, all while serving as a vital community partner.
