    Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument Arizona


Volunteering is an American tradition that has made an immeasurable contribution to parks, communities, and organizations throughout the country. Every year, thousands of individuals contribute time and skills to help protect the natural and cultural resources within the National Parks. Join the Volunteers-In-Parks (VIP) team.

Your volunteer time commitment can vary. You can choose a one-day task or participate in a long-term project - it is your choice. Opportunities are available for individuals, families, and organized groups. Working in the monument is an adventure due to its difficult access and remote location. The work may be challenging - but rewarding.
