No matter what your skills or interests, there's probably a place for you in the VIP (Volunteer in Parks) program at Jean Lafitte.
If you are interested in volunteering, please email the park.
For information about Jean Lafitte's six sites, see the plan your visit page.
Some volunteer positions may require training, which will be provided by the park, and uniforms may be provided for long-term volunteers. Project days which require little training and a minimum time commitment are regularly scheduled at some Jean Lafitte sites. Volunteers might help staff a park booth at a festival, dig out invasive plants, clean headstones at the national cemetery, or take photographs during an event. Group projects can also be arranged.
Follow the park on social media to find out about upcoming volunteer project days and to discover what's new with Jean Lafitte's krewe.
