Port Canaveral, FL –  For the fourth year, Port Canaveral is giving local students the opportunity to become young ambassadors for the upcoming 2023-2024 school year. The Canaveral Port Authority Junior Ambassador Program enables students from public high schools and private high schools within Brevard County to explore career opportunities at the Port. The program also seeks to provide workforce development to Port partners and community outreach.

Students meet with Port leaders during the school year in such areas as cruise, cargo, military, environment, hospitality, commercial space flight and construction. The final project will be a presentation that features what the students have learned during the program. Junior Ambassadors will share their presentations with the Commission and with students at their respective schools.

All five Commissioners will sponsor the upcoming 2023-2024 Junior Ambassadors program, which includes four meetings, one per 9-week school period.

The Canaveral Port Authority Board of Commissioners hosted graduates of the 2022-2023 Junior Ambassadors program at the April Commission meeting, including 20 students and their representatives from each of the represented high schools.

Representatives from Brevard Public Schools attended the presentation, including Matt Susin, Brevard County School Board Chairman, Megan Wright, Brevard County School Board Member District 1, and Dr. Stephanie Soliven, Brevard Public Schools Assistant Superintendent.
