Volunteer

OWSA has many opportunities for you to become involved. Here are just a few places for you to contribute:

  • A few minutes helping prep meals or cleanup after monthly OWSA meetings. (Just come on back to the Galley and ask how you can help.)
  • A few minutes talking to new and prospective members at our monthly OWSA meetings. (Just do it - Let's make them feel welcome.)
  • An evening hosting a OWSA Fireside at your home for new members.  Don't worry, we supply the presenter.  We just need hostesses. Contact fireside@owsa.net for details.
  • A couple of hours crewing the OWSA booth at the Oregon Boat Show in January. Contact boatshow@owsa.net for details.
  • A few hours sailing and mentoring as an experienced sailor.  Wednesday Night Sails (WNS) aren't just for new sailors.  We need your experience. Sign up and join us.
  • A couple of hours or more helping to plan our Summer Picnic.  Contact social@owsa.net for details.
  • A couple of hours or more helping to teach our classes.  Topics vary.  Someone helped you gain your skills - this is a wonderful way to pay it back. Contact education@owsa.net for details
  • Seasonal (Spring/Summer) work like being an Education Galley Gal, Education Gate Keeper, or Education Guppy.   Contact education@owsa.net for details.
  • Set Sail for a Cause returns each Fall, and we need your help to make it a success.  If you are interested in being a part of the planning committee or would just like to learn more about this amazing event and how you might help, email info@SetSailForACause.net.

Please contact OWSA's Vice Commodore for volunteer opportunities at ViceCommodore@OWSA.net.
