Volunteering with the Schooner Virginia

The Schooner Virginia serves the Nauticus Foundation’s effort to engage the Hampton Roads community, with a focus on delivering transformative maritime experiences to our underserved youth.

Like Sail Nauticus, the Schooner Virginia project is part of the Nauticus Foundation's sailing vision. For more information on the Schooner Virginia, please click here.

Are you interested in volunteering on Norfolk's very own tall ship? We are always looking for volunteers, from the very beginner to the skilled sailor. No experience is required--just sign up using the calendar below for the shift that works best for you. We are happy to have volunteers M-F from 9-5, and for our weekly Saturday work parties from 9-12. Please note, you do not need to stay for the whole day--just indicate on the sign up sheet what time we can expect you!
