Starboard II✨ will be the Monoceros Initiative's second event, a three-day weekend ADHD collaboration cruise.

This cruise is for ADHD professionals and ADHD content creators to come together to network, discuss perspectives on ADHD, and collaborate on ideas and projects. 

Medical providers, therapists, coaches, app developers, support group facilitators, speakers, content creators, and more are all invited. If you are a provider of ADHD support directly or indirectly, you are welcome! 

If you aren't an ADHD professional and you aren't yet making ADHD content, but you want to start, you are also welcome! There will be no gatekeeping. Join us if you want to talk about ADHD content and care.

Tickets to this event are extremely limited, and are first-come-first-serve.

What (and who) is the Monoceros Initiative? 🤔

As fulfilling as this work can be, it can sometimes feel isolating to create this content on our own, but making new connections and suggesting collaborations can feel awkward and clunky, especially after years of pandemic living.

We, Ron Capalbo and Jaye Lin, are seeking to change that, with our new venture: The Monoceros Initiative.

The Monoceros constellation is a unicorn, a wonderful symbol for neurodivergence. Only a few of the stars in the constellation are visible to the naked eye, and yet the other stars still exist, significantly part of this constellation once the dots are connected.

Events with The Monoceros Initiative will connect ADHD professionals and content creators, forging bonds, connecting individuals for collaboration, and creating a community that makes us all bigger than the sum of our parts.


Q: Can I bring my partner, friends, family, and/or kids?

A: Yes! While only registered Starboard participants can participate in Starboard-specific programming, you can bring anyone else with you to come along on the cruise!

Q: What do I do if I can't find anyone to share a stateroom with me?

A: Email us at monocerosinitiative@gmail.com and we'll try to set you up with another participant! 

Q: What is the cost of booking a stateroom and what's that link again?

A: The cost of staterooms vary depending on type of room, how many people you are traveling with, whether you have special discount codes, and whether you wish to pre-pay for gratuity.  You can book a stateroom with Royal Caribbean here.

Q: Will I need a passport?

A: If you are a US Citizen, you are not required to have a passport, but if you do not have a passport or passport card, you will need a copy of your birth certificate and a government issued ID to board the boat.

Q: Why aren't you packaging up the cruise and Starboard for us?

A: Doing so would dramatically increase the cost to Starboard participants. We want to keep the event as inclusive as possible. Having participants book their staterooms separate from Starboard registration ensures everyone will have the lowest prices available, be able to select their stateroom of choice, and allow family and friends to join on the cruise without paying Starboard fees.
