Volunteer at the Statue of Liberty National Monument!
The National Park Service has a long tradition of volunteerism. From "grass roots" groups advocating for the protection of a site to local residents supplementing a park's staff-ordinary people, from all walks of life, have the chance to get involved with their national parks in many meaningful ways. Some folks help out with a single big event, while others volunteer on a daily or weekly basis.
Come on out and see what you can do!
At the Statue of Liberty National Monument, we have a number of volunteer opportunities on both Liberty Island and Ellis Island, including:
You may also be able to volunteer in the Research Library at Ellis Island, assist with historical preservation, or work with our maintenance staff.
For more information about these volunteer opportunities and contact information, go to www.volunteer.gov/gov and use "Statue of Liberty National Monument" as the key word.

Freedom is not standing still. A symbolic feature that people cannot see is the broken chain wrapped around the Statue's feet. Protruding from the bottom of her robe, the broken chains symbolize her free forward movement, enlightening the world with her torch free from oppression and servitude.
