Volunteers In Parks are VIPs

Anyone can be a VIP at George Washington Carver National Monument. Groups and individuals may serve in a variety of volunteer jobs. Are you a storyteller? You are needed during Pioneer Day field trips for school groups or riding the wagons during Prairie Day in September. Do you enjoy meeting and talking to people? There is a place for you at the visitor center front desk. Do you prefer to stay behind-the-scenes? You may enjoy working in the park library. VIPs sometimes work maintaining buildings and grounds, removing invasive plants in the prairie units, conducting education programs during field trip seasons, staffing special events, providing guided tours, conducting interpretive programs, or working on special projects. Whatever your talents or interests, park staff will work to match them to a volunteer job.

Park Mission
The mission of George Washington Carver National Monument is to maintain, preserve, and interpret, in a suitable and enduring manner, the life and legacy of George Washington Carver for the benefit and enjoyment of the people of the United States of America.
