Volunteers-In-Parks (VIP)

As a volunteer at San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park, you will not only stay active and involved, you will have the chance to teach others and learn new skills! Help present the natural and cultural resources of the nation's only 'floating' national park to a diverse visitor population, and help preserve these unique resources for future generations.

The VIP office welcomes back all our old friends and welcomes aboard our new friends. VIPs are here to support all the activities in the park from ship preservation to cleaning up the shoreline along Aquatic Park beach.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Terry Dorman or Erin Conner in the Volunteer Office, located on Hyde Street Pier, at 415-561-7160 or by email. Terry Dorman Erin Conner

VIPs are involved in almost every aspect of the park's operation:

· Ships Maintenance
· Exhibit Construction
· Interpretation & Education
· Graphic Arts
· Steam Engineering
· Sailing
· Music
· Library and Archival Collections
