Caring for Seafarers into the Future
Volunteer for SMGG
We have several programs for volunteers who are called to serve and care for seafarers.
Ship Visitors and Drivers
We provide all the needed training to be a ship visitor. If you love meeting new people from around the world, have a sympathetic heart and ear to lend then this opportunity is for you. We provide vans for transportation. Federal government background check is required.
This opportunity is perfect for college and graduate students in fields of counseling.
Be an Advocate for Seafarers
If you have a passion for all things maritime, become an advocate for SMGG in the local community. Your words, actions, and deeds are important to seafarers all over the world. We will support you in giving talks to local community groups about seafarers in order to raise awareness and support for SMGG.
Adopt a Ship
Many of the ships come to the Port of Oakland every month and a half. This gives us a great opportunity to welcome the ship every time they come into the Golden Gate. When you adopt a ship, you can come up with a way to extend hospitality to them. Anything to making them a pie to taking them shopping or just visiting and saying hello are all great ways to show that you care.
Write a Prayer for a Prayer Book
We are creating a prayer/inspirational book to pass out to seafarers when we visit ships. If you or your worship community want to participate contact us.
Become a Leader for SMGG
SMGG is always interested in adding responsible and dedicated leadership to its board and committees. If you would like to volunteer your time and talents please contact us and a current board member will speak to you about this opportunity.
