Our Mission

During phase one, our efforts will be put toward cleaning up existing cruising grounds so that we can welcome tourists as soon as possible.  We will support beach clean-up efforts, fund the removal of uninsured sunken boats, and depending on fund growth possibly award micro-grants to help repair boats and gear-up our land-based support providers to get the marine industry back to work.

Phase two will involve working with the local government to identify areas of infrastructure that are in need of repair and opportunities for future growth of the USVI marine economy.

Phase three will focus on working with the high schools and the University of the Virgin Islands to create marine vocational programs to track more of our youth into a variety of jobs within the marine industry — both on-board boats and also in the land-based marine support industry.
