Help With a Special Event

President's Park hosts a number of large events throughout the year. We often look for volunteers to provide help to visitors in many different ways during these events:

  • White House Garden Tours (spring and fall)
  • Easter Egg Roll
  • Lighting of the National Christmas Tree
  • Inauguration
If you interested in volunteering at any of these events, please email the volunteer coordinator or call 202-208-1631.

Easter Egg Roll
President's Park is looking for volunteers to help with the 137th White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday, April 6, 2015. This is an annual event where more than 30,000 guests - including children and adults - participate in activities on the South Lawn of the White House.

We need high energy individuals to assist with crowd control, help guests to find where they need to be, direct line movement, and maintain order. You will assist guests entering the event from the Ellipse, south of the White House, and Sherman Plaza, located just east of the South Lawn.

While the Egg Roll is a fun event for children and their parents, guests can become stressed as they wait in multiple lines to participate in activities. Therefore, it is imperative that we have spirited volunteers who enjoy and are comfortable around large crowds. If this is you, please complete and submit the Easter Egg Roll 2015 Volunteer Application before March 5, 2015. You will receive a confirmation about training and further details soon after. (NOTE: There may be a problem accessing the link from work or school so it may be forwarded to a personal account.)

This is a rain or shine volunteer activity that would only be interrupted by severely inclement weather.

More Volunteer Opportunities
If you would like to volunteer on a regular basis, our ongoing volunteer needs are described on the Volunteer page. All volunteers must complete the volunteer application before beginning service.
