Presidential yacht Seventy-fith an
F.D.R.'s "Floating White House"
Home » Volunteer
The Presidential Yacht Potomac is run by volunteers. Over 120 men and women staff this Historic Landmark and all of the organization’s programs and activities. The opportunities for volunteers span a wide range from ship’s maintenance, speaker’s bureau, IT specialist, newsletter editing, cruise staffing, dockside tours, office and administrative positions and educational programs. No special background is required, simply a desire to be part of our Potomac “staff” and to have fun…because you will!

The Potomac Association believes that every volunteer is an asset and we take time to ensure that you are well trained and supported. As a new volunteer you will experience a three hour orientation / introduction session, and each year there is a refresher on specific opportunities. We provide learning materials for you and we have a library devoted to FDR, Eleanor, and the era. The best way to learn however is from the other fabulous volunteer docents who are the heart of the Potomac.
