The National Park Service protects more than 390 national parks in the United States. You can help care for one of these special places by volunteering at Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site.
Volunteers in Parks (VIPs) help carry out the National Park Service mission: "to preserve unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the national park system for the enjoyment, education and inspiration of this and future generations."
We invite you to become a VIP and join us in our efforts to preserve and interpret this site. To find out more, call (785) 354-4273 and ask to speak with the Volunteer Coordinator or visit the VIP website at www.volunteer.gov/gov.
