The mission of the Continental Sloop Providence is to provide a safe, fun and exciting stage to teach the history
of Narragansett Bay, skills of the lost art of square rig sailing,
and other topics. Due to the enormous operating expenses, the
volunteer program is a very important and integral part of the
Continental Sloop Providence.
As a volunteer, you can help
the operation in countless ways, from sanding and painting (maintenance
to the vessel), to office and phone calls - your time and skills,
whatever they may be, will be greatly (and thankfully!) used by
the Continental Sloop Providence. Your donation of your services (no matter how
small) is valued and absolutely no prior sailing experience is
necessary. Every volunteer will be given an opportunity to sail
aboard the Continental Sloop Providence - in fact, we strongly recommend that you
take a sail with us - for some people it has been the experience
of a lifetime!
