Volunteers in Parks

Have you ever wanted to work in a national park?

Do you enjoy meeting and working with people from many different places?

Are you interested in giving something back to your community?

If so, Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park would like to meet you.

The park is currently looking for volunteers to help staff our two visitor centers. We are looking for volunteers to operate our contact desks and to greet and orient visitors. You will be providing answers to visitor questions, giving directions, starting the films in our theaters, and handling sales material. You will have the opportunity to learn about literary history, early aviation, and the history of Progressive-era Dayton.

We are looking for people who enjoy the challenge of working in a changing environment where every visitor comes with unique perspectives and opportunities to grow. We are looking for people who are self motivated, inquisitive and cheerful; people who find interest in the stories of Paul Laurence Dunbar and Wilbur and Orville Wright. The park is looking for people who want to learn about U.S. history and have the desire to share that knowledge with others.

If you are interested in working in a dynamic, changing environment, please contact Robert Petersen at 937-225-7705, by e-mail at e-mail us, or by writing to Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park, 16 S. Williams Street, Dayton, Ohio 45402. Come, help us preserve and interpret the history of this great land. Help us to tell these stories to a broader audience.

Come be a part of your national parks.

(VIPs) show their support by donating valuable time that allows park staff to run a number of programs that would be impractical or impossible without volunteer assistance. For more information contact the Volunteer Coordinator at 937.225.7705.
