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

5. Charles Pinckney National Historic Site

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, Library Assistant, Resource Management Assistant, 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 the Volunteer Coordinator.
