The Volunteer-In-Parks (VIP) program started with just a few hundred volunteers in 1970 and has since grown to include more than 330,000 VIPs! These VIPs are working to help preserve and protect our natural and cultural heritage and whether they volunteer for a few hours on their weekend, stay on call to assist in emergencies, or work full-time as a campground host or park interpreter, these volunteers are an integral part of the NPS workforce!
