Come be a part of our team! No specific skill set is needed, just a willingness to work and get your hands dirty. There are plenty of projects ahead, and once you've signed up, you'll be matched up to projects that match your skills and desires.



To be a volunteer at Kentucky Steam Heritage Corporation, there are just a few requirements that must be met. These are all done electronically and take about a day to process.


  1. Sign up for an account with our volunteer system at kentuckysteam.z2systems.com. If you have already donated in the past through this portal or have an active membership, you already have an account and do not need to register again. Use the password reset button to check and see.

  2. Sign up for any one of our attractive memberships - anywhere from a volunteer to a major contributor!

  3. Signup to the new volunteers project through the kentuckysteam.z2systems.com web portal.

  4. Once we get your signup, you will be emailed a link for a mandatory volunteer background check. We have negotiated the rate of our background checks to an affordable $19 one-time fee* 

  5. Once we review all this information, we will send you the volunteer rules, expectations, and contract. Sign it and get it back to us and you are good to go and we will provide you with more training and information.

If you have any questions please feel free to email us at info@kentuckysteam.org
