Volunteer Your Time and Skills

We can't keep this place around without the helpful contributions from our volunteers. If you have free time that you'd like to spend at the Center, fill out the form below. We have a growing list of projects that need attention!

Speaker Series

Looking for some mid-week excitement!? Our Wednesday night Speaker Series is a great way to split up a long week with refreshments and our most enlightening orators. Stay tuned to your inbox or our events page for information on our upcoming guest speakers. If you would like to participate in the series as a speaker, e-mail your ideas to info@spauldingcenter.org


Want to learn something new or brush up on an old skill? We have guest lecturers on the occasional Saturday give full day lessons on specific marine-related trades.

Interested in teaching a Saturday Workshop at Spaulding? Email us with your ideas at info@spauldingcenter.org - We'd be happy to work you into the schedule!

Youth Programs

Our youth programs are underway!

If you would like to construct your first boat, make a new set of oars, build a toolbox or design your own skateboard, we will have a class for you.

To start things off this semester, we are offering a two-part workshop. In these classes, students will design and build their own skateboard deck from 7 layers of raw maple. Class will take place on January 7th and 14th from 9:30am - 3:30pm.

Visit our EVENTS page for details and upcoming classes.

The best way to introduce the public to wooden boats is to cast off from our dock for a trip on the Bay. We offer sailing excursions to those who may not otherwise have the opportunity and ask you to join us for a sail aboard our 1885 gaff rigged sloop.

We have qualified a few skippers to take out our guests, but need more help. FREDA requires ongoing maintenance and care in order to preserve her as a historic Sausalito entity. Donations from these day sails will help keep her on the water and exposing hundreds of people to an experience from another time.

Those interested in contributing their time, skills, or tax deductible donation please reach out.
