Our People...



Ship-visiting volunteers



Kobe Mariners' Centre is a volunteer-based organisation. The volunteers at the Centre help with visiting the ships in the mornings and/or looking after the Centre in the afternoons or evenings and/or driving the seafarers to and from their vessels.

Our staff represent many different nationalities, reflecting the cross-section of seafarers we meet everyday.


If you are interested in helping, improving your English skills, opening your mind and meeting people from many many different backgrounds and countries, please contact us - general@flyingangelkobe.org.
