We foster environmental sustainability, youth development, and maritime careers through powerful shipboard programs aboard the schooner Adventuress on the waters of the Salish Sea. Adventuress is a century-old National Historic Landmark tall ship. Sound Experience is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) based in Washington State, USA.
It's Not a Time to be Silent - A message from Sound Experience
As a nonprofit education organization, Sound Experience is committed to equity and racial justice. Our policies reflect this commitment of inclusion; our practices include restorative training and programming. We recognize, though, that we are not doing enough.
In the coming weeks and months, we commit to deepening our work with community partners to address the continuing inequities in environmental education and maritime workforce development. For decades, both these spaces have lacked diversity and inclusion of Black and Brown people. This needs to change. Change happens with intention, planning and resources. We can do better.
Aboard Adventuress, we are ALL shipmates. This means that all of us – aboard the ship and throughout the Puget Sound region communities we serve – are shipmates. We care for each other physically and emotionally. We commit to fostering safe spaces for young people to grow and to learn. We steward the environment which sustains us all – all beings, all humans regardless of skin color.
We stand together, for our shipmates, until justice is achieved – and until all human beings can live without fear and can thrive in an equitable America.

“Kids learn through experience. Some of the most vivid and meaningful learning happens outside of the classroom… There aren’t many places on Earth that have a resource as powerful as Adventuress. I am truly grateful that my students can have this opportunity.”
“It’s a very unique opportunity for young people to get away from an urban environment and really live with a group of people working on the water. Partly it has to do with the historic nature of the ship and partly it has to do with a deep love for Puget Sound. Who wouldn’t want that for their kids?”
