2021 Volunteer Training

While some of ISEA volunteer positions do not require training, we do train volunteers who wish to be an instructor for school programs or crew on the schooner Inland Seas or Utopia. Each training session has digital resources (e.g., video, manual, etc.) for you to review prior to the training date. We will have engaging activities to test your understanding of the topic during the Zoom sessions (i.e., training dates) and we’ll answer any questions. All training sessions will be recorded and available for viewing at a later date if you cannot attend the live session. Please register below for the training sessions you are interested in attending.

If you are new to volunteering with Inland Seas, please contact Juliana at jlisuk@schoolship.org.
