Kalmar Nyckel : Volunteers : Greeters and Docents

Greeters and Docents

Greeters:  Volunteers staff the welcome deck on weekends from November through April at the shipyard in Wilmington, DE.  Responsibilities include: greeting the public, selling souvenirs at our small shop, showing guests around the education exhibit hall and then passing the guests off to a docent who gives tours of the ship.  People who are friendly and love talking to guests are perfect for this volunteer position! Shifts are typically 10am-1pm and 1pm-4pm.  All greeters are required to fill out the Kalmar Nyckel Foundation volunteer application, and do a back ground check (at your expense, of $16).  Once registered, volunteers sign up on our electronic calendar, as their schedules allow.  If you want to get a feel for the Kalmar Nyckel Foundation, we do offer volunteer open houses periodically to give you a glimpse of what kind of volunteer opportunities might be a good fit for you!  To get started, please e-mail captainsharon@kalmarnyckel.org

Docents: Volunteer docents (tour guides) show guests around the education exhibit hall and the tallship Kalmar Nyckel on weekends from November through April at the shipyard in Wilmington, DE.  Docents are taught the history of both the original Kalmar Nyckel, and the newly-built ship as well as the history of the colony of New Sweden.  Shifts are typically 10am-1pm and 1pm-4pm.  All greeters are required to fill out the Kalmar Nyckel Foundation volunteer application, and do a back ground check (at your expense, of $16).  Docents are also subject to United States Coast Guard random drug testing program, as they handle passengers on the USCG certified vessel (one time expense of $35).  Once registered, volunteers sign up on our electronic calendar, as their schedules allow.  If you want to get a feel for the Kalmar Nyckel Foundation, we do offer volunteer open houses periodically to give you a glimpse of what kind of volunteer opportunities might be a good fit for you!  To get started, please e-mail captainsharon@kalmarnyckel.org
