One of San Pedro’s real points of pride is the Los Angeles Maritime Institute (LAMI) and its TopSail Youth Program.

LAMI uses hands-on experiences at sea to provide an array of social, education and leadership development opportunities to middle school and high school students in San Pedro and Wilmington, and throughout the greater Los Angeles area.
