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.
Park volunteers serve visitor needs while working at the information desk, greeting visitors, answering telephone calls, providing information on the parks histories, showing videos, performing book sales, providing directions, assisting park rangers with group tours, helping maintain museum exhibits, assisting with special park events, etc.
