Volunteer-In-Parks (VIP) help the National Park Service meet its mission of preserving natural and cultural resources while providing for the enjoyment and education of this and future generations. At Manzanar, volunteers contribute to every aspect of the site’s preservation and operations including working on archeological digs, visitor services, maintenance, and much more! We seek volunteers of all ages and backgrounds who are active, dynamic, creative, compassionate, and wish to learn more about and preserve Manzanar’s very important history.
Types of VolunteersWe have recurring and year-round opportunities for individuals as well as opportunities to volunteer for special events such as our public archeological projects. Your contribution helps us to protect the cultural, historical, and natural resources of Manzanar. Check out some potential opportunities on our Individual Volunteers page.
Groups of all ages are welcome to volunteer for short or long-term projects. Most group projects take place in the fall or spring to take advantage of the best weather chances. Check out our Group Volunteers page for our current opportunities or to request a date to have your group volunteer!
