• Construction/Maintenance • Historical Preservation • Other • General Assistance
With the Star Fort as its centerpiece Fort McHenry is home to several buildings which require regular maintenance and care. To help our staff preserve these historic structures we are looking for maintenance volunteers with skills in light carpentry and/or painting. If you are handy and willing to work on the original “home of the brave” please join our team!
Work is both indoor and outdoor in nature. Volunteers should be prepared for wide extremes in weather - in the summer it can get very hot and humid, averaging between 90 and 98 degrees, and in the winter it can be very cold and blustery, averaging between 38 degrees and freezing! Bending and light lifting may be required.
Our volunteers are required to donate eight (8) hours of time a month, generally over the course of two days. Volunteers are needed for weekdays.
