Volunteers in Parks at the James A. Garfield National Historic Site enjoy a variety of experiences working both with the public and behind-the-scenes. Our VIP's provide interpretive tours of the Garfield Home, orient visitors in our Visitor Center/Bookstore, and help rangers at various special events occurring throughout the year. James A. Garfield NHS is currently seeking volunteers to provide historic house tours, orient visitors in the Visitor Center/bookstore, and assist staff at special events.

Whether you are retired, looking for something fun and interesting to do over summer break, or seeking an enlightening place to spend your weekend days, our site has something for you!

Students in need of service hours or internships may work with the ranger staff to develop a unique learning opportunity to fit your school's requirements.

Contact Ranger Mary for opportunities.
