Volunteer during the Sailing Season
Join the crew for one month or longer during the sailing season. These volunteer positions include room and board on Adventuress. Interns become active members of the crew. On-the-job training is provided and interns will take part in all aspects of programming, gaining valuable experience in environmental and marine science education, as well as sailing and vessel operations. Specific duties will include teaching, sailing, ship maintenance, assisting in the galley, and more.
Interns must be over 18 years old, have an interest in and desire to teach program areas of ecology, environmental awareness, and sailing; live in a close shipboard environment; take part in all aspects of operating the vessel; and work with youth and adults in promoting Sound Experience's mission. Please visit the Join our Crew page for more information , or e-mail Amy at email@example.com
We're always looking for shore support! If you're interested in helping at fundraising events, in the Sound Experience booth at Festivals, or with filing, data entry, and other tasks in the Sound Experience office (located in Port Townsend), please contact Susan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteer in Winter
Next Work Weekend is February 29th and March 1st.
Our staff, crew, and incredible community of volunteers will dedicate themselves to preparing Adventuress for another year of service. This is the last work weekend before crew return so please come out in force to help finish up that long list of winter projects!
Lunch and snacks will be provided both days. Because of the ongoing winter work, we are unable to house volunteers on the ship. There are some Adventuress community members in Port Townsend who may have warm beds to offer a limited number of volunteers. If you are interested, please reach out to Susan in the office at 360-379-0438 x 1and she can put out a request. We cannot guarantee housing for the work weekend.
In addition to the items on the list, we're always looking for more rags.
