Coastal Resources Center CRC Volunteer Information
The Coastal Resources Center (CRC) promotes volunteerism. Our Rhode Island-based program for volunteer citizen water quality monitoring served as a national model. Volunteers have also served in many of our international field programs. International volunteer assignments are geared toward working professionals with at least five years of experience and who are willing to spend several weeks on an overseas assignment in a developing country. In 2005, the Coastal Resources Center's International Volunteer Program was highlighted in the annual Volunteers for Prosperity report to the White House.
