Oliver Hazard Perry Rhode Island is what it is because of our volunteers. Your volunteer contribution makes a difference. Whether you're able to help with major events or you have the time to assist on a regular basis, a rewarding and invaluable experience awaits you.
Our volunteer positions are primarily land based, and include assistance with fundraising, events, committee work, office help, festivals or tours. Our shipboard crew positions are filled with long term professional crew. Unfortunately we do not have short term volunteer positions onboard.
We always love to welcome new and existing volunteers to our team to help during open house events. We attend some great festivals, such as the Newport Boat Show, Bowen's Wharf Seafood Festival & Tall Ship festivals up and down the east coast. You will find it a very rewarding community to be involved in. You will be provided with a docent guide book and a much sought after orange volunteer t-shirt.
