The SS Red Oak Victory is looking for welders to help us restore and maintain our floating museum! Do you have a current welder certification?
Built in 1944, this ship was assembled in pieces, and then sections were lifted by crane into place and welded into their final configuration. We are looking for welders who have stick welding experience to assist on some restoration projects aboard. We are currently operating on 2 1940s DC-powered welding machines.
Interested volunteers should have a general knowledge of work safety training, and are required to adhere to all CDC work guidelines.

The ship is open for docent lead and self guided tours on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday from 10-3.
The Richmond Museum Association (RMA) offers volunteer opportunities for people of all walks of life. Our community of like-minded volunteers works toward a common goal to inspire people through Richmond history. RMA will make you feel welcome whether you seek to develop professional skills, deepen your own personal interests or just want to feel more connected to the past. The Museum and SS Red Oak Victory depend on volunteers with a wide range of skills so we can accomplish goals like operating the ship under her own power or ensuring every local student visits the Museum once during elementary school. We offer a wide range of positions to fit diverse skill sets including everything from greeting guests to education to ship restoration and everything in between. Volunteering is fun and fulfilling, leading to health benefits and enhanced quality of life, so join us today!
