If you —

  • are fond of sea, sailing and adventures;

  • dream to find friends and team-mates from different countries and to become a part of a close team;

  • would like to learn something new;

  • dream to become a member of the ship’s crew,

then the Volunteers Program of ‘Shtandart’ Project is here for you!
‘Shtandart’ needs you! The ship was built by enthusiasts of shipbuilding and lives on thanks to the voluntary assistance. The volunteer team is a consolidated structure which helps the Project for many years to stay its course.

You can help by taking part in our volunteer program that allows everyone who wants to become a part of ‘Shtandart’ and set sail.

There are several ways to join us:

  • You can come to Shtandart in autumn or winter for repair work, by prior arrangement after the announcement of the “recruitment of volunteers”. We are waiting for people who can come for a long time, for 2-3 months. The fact is that newcomers usually need some time to get to know the ship and find out how they can really help.

  • You can regularly help us via the remote volunteer program (just write us an e-mail to voyage@shtandart.eu.)

  • You can also participate on a commercial basis in one or more voyages of ‘Shtandart’ or summer voyages of captain gigs and prove yourself as a very smart and helpful participant (the decision is made by captain on board after the expiration of the paid-voyage).

  • You can regularly visit and work at the historical shipyard in St. Petersburg at Petrovskaya Kosa St., 9 (information about our activities, schedule and contacts of our instructors can be found in the group Captain’s gigs of Shtandart in the social network VKontakte (in Russian);

  • Since 01.01.14 on board of ‘Shtandart’ there is a fee collected from all the volunteers for food  – €10 per day.
