Volunteers-In-Parks (VIP)

The National Park Service is seeking motivated volunteers to assist park staff with visitors to the Tuskegee Institute National Historic Site. The park offers a variety of opportunities for volunteers to immerse themselves in history. Many parks could not operate without volunteers.
