Youth Volunteer Programs

At Fort Vancouver National Historic Site, we design and operate our Youth Volunteer-In-Parks (Y-VIP) Programs to empower participants to:

  • Create an environment allowing for a meaningful experience and a pathway to stewardship for public lands including national parks.
  • Achieve life skills that can be applied as a volunteer at Fort Vancouver or in their everyday lives.
  • Seek a path to higher education and professional career development.
  • Serve as role models for the communities in which they live.
  • Enjoy connecting -- and helping others connect -- to a national park!
