Contact: Robbie Meyer, (865) 482-1942Manhattan Project National Historical Park is seeking volunteers to assist Oak Ridge unit staff. Opportunities include staffing the visitor contact station at Children’s Museum of Oak Ridge and meeting and greeting visitors while providing information about the park. Opportunities to provide informational programs may also exist.
Volunteers usually work in four-hour blocks but can vary depending on the availability of the volunteer. Prospective volunteers should be interested in providing information to visitors from all over the country in an indoor setting. No money handling will be required, and volunteers will receive training about the Manhattan Project and World War II history, as well as National Park Service operations.
“Volunteers are a vital part of the team. We couldn’t do what needs to get done without their knowledge, skills, and abilities,” said Oak Ridge Site Manager Niki Stephanie Nicholas.
