Students who are Sophomores and Juniors in Brevard County public schools, private schools and homeschoolers are eligible to apply for this program.

The application date for the upcoming session has been extended to August 15, 2022.

“We are excited to share this opportunity at Port Canaveral for Brevard students,” said Canaveral Port Authority Commissioner Robyn Hattaway.

“I look forward to working with the next class of Junior Ambassadors this fall.”

The Junior Ambassador Program provides students with the opportunity to meet with Port partners from the cruise, cargo, recreation, hospitality, and environmental business sectors.

The students prepare a final project presentation to highlight what they have learned and will share their presentations with the Port Commission and students at their schools.
