There are a variety of volunteer opportunities within each division at Virgin Islands National Park. Getting involved in your parks not only aids parks themselves, but also heightens personal connection to parks’ resources.
Housing is not available for applicants. However, camping may be available, subject to availability, during the off-season (late summer and early fall). Park-specific training and uniforms will be provided.
Anyone interested in volunteering at Virgin Islands National Park can fill out a volunteer application and mail or email it to Virgin Islands National Park. For more information regarding volunteer positions, please contact Paul Thomas at (340-776-6201 x252).
