Volunteer

We need your skills

Teaching A big thank you to all our volunteers that help with the Wooden Boat Festival, River Rangers, and all our other events.

Do you have teaching skills, mechanical skills, tool skills? Do you want to you share these with our local youth? To do that, you need NMHA, because we can get you and young folk together, with a really cool goal. Build a wooden boat. You don't need boat skills, we have those. And you will too after your first session. We teach the teachers. But just showing kids how to countersink not too deep but deep enough, that sort of thing. And what tick mark is an eighth of an inch.

You do not have to be a member. Just tell us you are interested and would like to help, and a bit about your skills. We will get in touch.

We have other skill needs.

  • Tool skills - if you like to work with wood and have a little experience, we would like to invite you to participate in our boatbuilding family weekend events, or in our boat restoration projects.
  • Grant writing - NMHA has been very successful so far in acquiring grants. But this is an ongoing task for which we need more resources. If you believe in what we are doing and have skill in this area, please contact us. We can use your help.
  • Event Reporting - We are often in need of articles or press releases about our events. If you love to write and want to see your efforts “in print”. or “on this web site,” contact us by phone or at contact@navesinkmaritime.org. Of course you have to attend the event, and get copy to the webmaster (that's me) a day or so later. If you believe in what we are doing and have skill in this area, please contact us. We can use your help.
  • Membership campaigns We need members, and we need volunteers to help our campaign. If you believe in what we are doing and have skill in this area, please contact us. We can use your help.
