Volunteer Opportunities

Ambassadors - All who represent the Friends and the Battleship to the general public

  

Friends' Membership Desk 

Volunteers promote the sale/renewal of memberships. No experience required. Volunteers need to be very familiar with Friends membership levels, the benefits of those levels, and procedures to facilitate members of the general public becoming Friends members. 


Exhibit Gallery

Volunteers host museum visitors inside the exhibit hall and provide general museum information, surveillance and safety for museum visitors. No experience required. Volunteers must be able to answer questions concerning the exhibits and be familiar with the history of all ships named USS North Carolina. 


Ship Monitor 

Volunteers operate on board the ship and provide general information about the Battleship North Carolina. No experience required.  Volunteers need to be well versed in emergency response duties and able to answer general questions about the ship BB55. They are not tour guides necessarily (although they may also be qualified tour guides) but should be familiar enough to answer general questions about the ship and the area where they are posted on the ship. 

FAQ's

How many hours do I need to commit to? We ask that all volunteers commit to 40  hours per year.   Tour Guides are expected to commit to a minimum of 4 hours per month.


Will I be trained?  Yes, we have a formal training program for all positions.  Tour guides must take an 8 hour classroom class as well as pass a written and practical exam. 


Do I need a uniform? All volunteers receive a volunteer vest and name badge.  


What if I can't climb up and down ladders or have some other physical disability?  We have a number of volunteer opportunities that do not require climbing ladders and can be performed with those with a physical disability.
