Apprentice and sister at Moby-Dick Marathon

Throughout the program, Apprentices aid in public programming and special events. Our Apprentices create projects for the annual Moby-Dick Marathon, write children’s stories for the Haunted Whaleship, and design and manage crafts and activities for February Vacation Week, Right Whale Day, and Party for the Ocean Day. At the end of their three-year commitment, apprentices celebrate their accomplishments in a graduation ceremony. Learn more about each below.
