Volunteer Day

Oliver Hazard Perry is docked at Bowen’s Wharf, Newport, for the winter months of 2019-2020. Our volunteer program, scheduled for Saturdays throughout the winter until the end of April 2020, will focus on familiarizing and training volunteers on ship maintenance, safety, and guiding on-board tours of the vessel. Our goal is to prepare the ship for an exciting 2020 sailing season.

Sailing opportunities will be available beginning in May 2020 for continuing volunteers who have completed at least 40 hours of training and program experience.

To sign up to volunteer, please visit our volunteers page.
