Volunteers In Parks (VIP)

Become part of the VIP program by assisting park staff with interpretive, biological, archeology, or maintenance projects. Every year volunteers donate countless hours to many of the parks in the National Park Service system. The work done by volunteers is invaluable to each park, each community and every visitor. Individuals or groups can volunteer at any time of the year. Contact the park to request for more information.

The VIP program began in 1969 under the leadership of Director George B. Hartzog, Jr., when congress passed the Volunteers in the Parks Act of 1969. Read Director's Order #7: Volunteers in Parks, which has more information about volunteering in the national parks.
