YoungShip is a professional non-profit organisation for young people working within the global maritime industry. Founded in Bergen in 2004, the initiative spread quickly to other maritime hubs. The global YoungShip network today has more than 2,500 members in 17 branches in shipping centres around the world, including Norway, Singapore, Brazil, Mexico and the United Kingdom. The Cyprus branch of YoungShip was established in 2012 and Andreas Neocleous & Co LLC has supported it since its inception.
One of YoungShip’s objectives is to provide continuous education and training to its members and to develop the interest of the younger generation in the maritime industry. YoungShip Cyprus regularly presents free seminars on topics such as current and future trends in shipping, career development and interpersonal skills.
The latest YoungShip Cyprus seminar took place at our Limassol office on 25 February and focussed on careers in the shipping industry, with experienced shipping professionals sharing their knowledge and experience in shipping with attendees. We are delighted to host these seminars as part of our support of YoungShip.
