Volunteers at the Waterfront learn practically every aspect of historic ship preservation. No experience necessary!

Join the crew at South Street Seaport Museum in preserving, restoring, and maintaining our historic fleet of ships. Get your hands dirty, make some friends, and learn useful and unique skills!

You'll have the chance to participate in a variety of projects including learning about safety and protection, metal and wood preparation, painting and varnishing, hand and power tool use, and much more as you keep our magnificent historic ships floating.

We are working on projects around the waterfront and on the ships Tuesdays and Saturdays 10-5, and we need your help to preserve our seaport's rich history! We specifically need new volunteers for our TUESDAY WORKDAYS.

Must be above the age of 16 and provide proof of full COVID vaccination. All skill levels are welcome. Training is provided.


The South Street Seaport Museum preserves and interprets the ‚Äčorigins and growth of New York City as a world port, a place where goods, labor, and cultures are exchanged through work, commerce, and the interaction of diverse communities.
