The National Youth Commission, in partnership with the Indonesian Ministry of Youth and Sports, will be sending two (2) delegates (male and female) to the Ship for Archipelago Youth (also known as the Maritime Youth across Archipelago in Participation of Sail Morotai) in Indonesia.


The program, which will run for one (1) month from 27 August to 26 September, 2012, aims to enhance Maritime and Environmental Awareness and provide an environment for cultural understanding among the ASEAN youth. It also aims to introduce the diverse and colorful culture of Indonesia to the youth and develop entrepreneurship skills in fisheries among them.
The route of the ship will start from Jakarta and will make stops in the provinces of Ambon, Sorong, Raja Ampat, Morotai, Ternate, and Makasar before going back to Jakarta. Activities during the program will include seminars, workshops, art and culture performances, tree planting, tours, and group dynamics.
