Very Important People
Volunteers serve an integral role in the operation of Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace National Historic Site. The compelling history preserved at the site tells a story of how the early life of one of America's most admired presidents shaped him into the international figure he became. Volunteers have the opportunity to protect this extraordinary place and share it with visitors from around the world.
As a volunteer with the National Park Service, you become a part of a team with a long tradition of public service. Your principal duties will be to answer visitors' questions, lead guided tours, and roam areas to answer inquiries.
