Volunteer And Get Involved With Clean Ocean Access

We pride ourselves on being a non-profit organization that is dedicated to cleaning the ocean, providing local education and outreach, as well as developing circular economies that benefit all, including local businesses, society, and our environment. 

We are always collecting data to provide efficient and effective recommendations to improve priorities and decision making, while also providing local events to get the community involved. 

We have many opportunities for you to get involved and join us on our mission to create healthier oceans that are accessible to all. We are deeply rooted in our community and have many ongoing events and opportunities for you to volunteer and get involved. 

We love to host local events and cleanups, and we also provide water sampling every month. These are just a few of the ways you can get involved and work alongside us.

If you want to participate in local events, you can always check out our events page to see our latest calendar. We also have a volunteer page where you can sign up and pick your preferences for volunteer experiences, like picking once per month options or signing up for specific events. Have a business and want to launch a cool team building activity while improving the environment? Sign up to be a corporate partner for one of our beach clean-ups!

We also provide internship opportunities if you want to get even more involved for both college and high school students with many opportunities like environmental science, marketing, and sustainability. 

Even snapping photos helps out COA! Sign up for MyCoastRI and volunteer to report on your local environment during King Tides and storms to see how these effect the resilience of our coastline.
