Rosie the Riveter Trust is dedicated to sharing home front stories, inspiring youth, and preserving history through various programs at the park's visitor education center and beyond.
Rosie the Riveter Trust support the park with programs designed for youth throughout the year. From Rosie's Service Corps™ to Every Kid Outdoors and education programs for teachers and schools, there is something for every child at Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park.
Richmond contains more intact WWII Home Front sites than any other place in the United States. Visitors can explore a wealth of sites that bring the Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front history alive across the cityscape. By contributing to special exhibits at the visitor center, preserving historical sites, and contributing to the park's museum collection of wartime memorabilia, Rosie the Riveter Trust helps to ensure the legacy of all who contributed on the home front.
Many visitors to the Park, even residents of Richmond, are unaware of the rich and important history of the home front during World War II, and sharing the diverse perspectives is essential to understanding their relevance to our lives and choices today. The home front story (made up of millions of small stories) is a reminder that we can do anything if we put our will and our resources together.
Our goal is to share these stories in a variety of ways—from documentaries and recorded interviews, to in-person accounts at the visitors center and virtual educational programs— this indispensable history can reach as wide an audience as possible.
the Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front worker wall of honor project
Honor a past or living WWII Home Front Worker by having a banner on our WWII Home Front Worker Wall of Honor.
Launched in 2022 for the celebration of national “Rosie theRiveter Day,” this installation project honors both past and living individual WWII Home Front Workers.
The banners are currently installed adjacent to the visitor center at Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park, and thousands of people will see and know the role your home front worker played during one of the most important eras in American history for years to come. Be a part of beautifying this section of the Bay Trail and furthering our mission of Sharing Stories and Preserving History!
