The Coast Guard’s Partnership in Education

Seattle – 30 first graders from Hawthorne Elementary School recently visited the Coast Guard at Pier 36 as part of the Partnership in Education Program. A program that has provided educational assistance through tutoring and lecturing and has exposed students to positive role models since 1991.

The children were also provided with a demonstration from the Maritime Safety and Security Team 91101 K-9 Unit, a mock search and rescue mission from Air Station Port Angeles, and a tour of Station Seattle and the Coast Guard Museum.
