Volunteers assist at all levels at Homestead National Monument of America. Some volunteers help with administration, while some are project leaders for nationally recognized research. Students, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and 4-H groups often help with projects. Volunteers of all ages help at special events by setting up, demonstrating homesteader crafts, publicizing in town, guiding visitors through activities, and much, much more. We couldn't do it without them!
We would love to have you as part of our team!
