Rozalia ProjectRozalia Project, a Granville, VT-based non-profit organization with a mission to clean and protect our ocean, is seeking volunteer crew members for expeditions this summer aboard the greenest sailing research vessel in the world, the 60-foot American Promise.


“We are looking for energetic, enthusiastic people who are aligned with our mission and the expedition for which you are applying in a personal way,” Rozalia Project co-founder and Executive Director Rachael Z. Miller. “You do not need to be a science major. We like to fill the boat with people who are a variety of ages, minimum age is 18 (last year we spanned ages 21 to 63!) and from a variety of academic, professional and geographic backgrounds.”

“We are looking for people to fill the following roles, or who have the following skills,” Miller continued. “There are four core volunteer crew positions available for each expedition (people who will come for all or most of an expedition), with two spaces left for partners, journalists, guest scientists, guest educators and others who come and go every few days. The minimum age to participate is 18. We do take a few undergrads on each expedition, but like to have people from their 20s to 60s all working together to share experiences, knowledge and perspectives to find solutions to the problem of marine debris!” For more information and to apply, visit
