Hamilton Grange Is In Need of Volunteers!

Do you enjoy working with people? Do you love history? Do you want to share the stories of our national heritage? Have you ever thought about working in a National Park? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, here is an opportunity for you!

At Hamilton Grange National Memorial, we welcome volunteers for a variety of projects. We deeply appreciate the time and effort that volunteers give to help our visitors understand and appreciate this important place. Volunteer opportunities include working in the visitor center, leading tours and assisting with special events.

Hamilton Grange National Memorial is committed to diversity, and volunteers are welcomed without regard to race, creed, religion, age, sex, national origin, or disability. Please note that volunteers are not considered to be federal employees, but are protected from tort claims and may receive injury compensation. We supply uniform shirts and may supply other items to identify a volunteer. It is not our policy to offer any stipends for volunteers. Volunteer service is not creditable for leave accrual or any other employee benefit. However, volunteer service is creditable as work experience.

We have a current need for volunteers to work in our Visitor Center. If you are a people person, then please consider applying! You will help visitors get the most out of their National Park Service experience by providing them with friendly guidance during their time at Hamilton Grange. You may also lead tours, assist with children's programs and special events, answer questions, help to create social media content, and do so much more! A time commitment of at least four hours per week is requested. Please note that we generally require an adult chaperone to oversee any work performed by a volunteer who is under the age of 18.

To apply to become a volunteer please print and complete the Volunteer Application, and fax it to: 646-548-9366. You may also e-mail it to hagr_info@nps.gov. For more information contact a Park Ranger at (646) 548-2310.
