Volunteers at all skill levels are welcome.  We do limit tasks for those under 21 years of age. For instance, those under 16 are not allowed to use most powered tools.  Please fill out our application form to tell us about yourself.

All potential volunteers must sign our liability waiver.  Those under 18 years of age, must have the signature of a parent or guardian.  You can print and sign it and bring to your orientation or first work day.

  • Many new volunteers begin as "gangway greeters" welcoming visitors on board and introducing them to the ship.
  • Volunteer tour guides show visitors around and help to tell the ship's story.
  • For those volunteers interested in getting their hands dirty, restoration and maintenance require many skills from painter to welder to plumber to engineer.
  • Volunteers can also assist with office duties including bookkeeping, event planning, and updating the website.

Please contact us if you would like to help get Lilac steaming again.
