The Gloucester Adventure is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Volunteers are the core of our organization. Every aspect of our community-based effort to save Adventure depends on volunteers who are needed to help work on the vessel, staff the office, raise funds, and organize events. If you would like to help, please call or email us. Supporters of Adventure know that their contributions are making a significant and worthwhile impact on preventing the disappearance of this icon of our nation’s maritime heritage.
Some examples of office volunteer activities are: desktop publishing, mailings, curatorial/photographic archives work, answering the telephone, filing, assisting with fundraising, PR, membership and volunteer outreach, distributing posters and brochures, and general administration.
Volunteers are needed every Saturday starting at 9:00AM at Adventure to help with the ongoing restoration project. Usually we are doing basic cleaning, maintenance, scraping & painting.
SPECIAL EVENTS AND EDUCATION
Examples of Adventure’s events include Holiday Tea, the Mayor’s Cup Reception, Annual Meeting, Auction, and various festivals. Volunteers are needed for these events for planning, picking up supplies, setting up/cleaning up, running the Ships Store, directing children activities, helping during the event by manning the schooner and serving as guides to visitors.
