Lift All Boats: Student Lobster Mentorship Application
Luke's Lobster, one of the largest lobster buyers in the state of Maine and the operator of a Certified B Corp restaurant group and lobster production business, is offering a summer mentorship to train students from historically disadvantaged communities to become lobstermen or lobsterwomen. This will be a competitive application process, and once your application is received the next step will be a conversation with one of the organizers to get to know you better. These conversations will take place in early 2024.

Getting a license to lobster professionally requires a many-years-long wait, unless you begin before the age of 18 and complete a student lobster license program. This program is impossible to complete without the support of existing lobstermen, access to a boat and gear, and time on the water. The Luke's Lobster team is committed to providing all these things to you, along with training on how to run your own small business, how to navigate the lobster industry, and how to get the financial support you need to buy a boat and start a career, and connections to active fishermen for well-paying jobs. We will be there as a mentor and resource every step of the way to help you complete the license process and paperwork and get your full commercial license.

As a company, Luke's Lobster has a mission to instill a culture of community, where everyone is valued for their differences and encouraged to bring their authentic self and their varied perspectives to work. We aim to promote this culture throughout our company, which will help foster an inclusive and representative environment for our community. Ensuring that students like you have the same access to the fishery as children of current fishermen is a major part of that mission.

Even with all the resources Luke's will offer, completing your student license will take a lot of time and effort. But Luke's will do all we can to help you on your path and we are excited to see you succeed.
