Roosevelt-Vanderbilt National Historic Site
Have you ever wanted to work at a National Park assisting visitors? Are you interested in recordkeeping, data entry, or clerical work? Does early 20th century history fascinate you? Do you like leading tours and giving public presentations?
If any of the above intrigues you, consider becoming a volunteer. There are a variety of volunteer opportunities available at Roosevelt-Vanderbilt National Historic Sites including:
· Assisting the interpretive staff conducting tours in the FDR home, Val-Kill, or Vanderbilt Mansion, and on the grounds.
· Assisting the interpretive staff at the visitor center information desks answering questions, and providing information about the park and surrounding area.
· Assisting the interpretive staff in "backing up" large tour and school groups.
· If you enjoy working outdoors, and are interested in gardening, there are opportunities available to volunteer with the Beatrix Farrand Garden Association or the Frederick W. Vanderbilt Garden Association.
