Fort Sumter National Monument and Charles Pinckney National Historic Site offer many opportunities for "Very Important People" or Volunteers-In-Parks. Volunteers are utilized at all Fort Sumter National Monument and Charles Pinckney National Historic Site locations in the Charleston area- including:
1. Fort Sumter
2. Fort Moultrie
3. Fort Sumter Visitor Education Center (Liberty Square)
4. Tour Boats with Fort Sumter Tours
6. Fort Sumter NM Curatorial Facility
There are a variety of opportunities at each of the sites. It is our goal to match the park's needs with the volunteers' interests and skills to ensure a positive experience for all. The following are a few of the major volunteer opportunities, but volunteers are not limited to these duties: Visitor Center Assistant, Curatorial Assistant, Guide and Front-line representative, Living-History Volunteer, Historical Transcriber, Library Assistant, Administrative Assistant, Resource Management Assistant, Writer/Editor etc.
Many volunteers come from the local commuting area or live seasonally in the area; however, there are opportunities for those with RV's to volunteer and stay at Charles Pinckney NHS. Please read more about RV Volunteers for details as this is a greater time commitment.
If you have additional questions please e-mail Volunteer Coordinator Antoine Fletcher.
