Volunteers are an important assest to the National Park Service. Over 90,000 Volunteers work in Parks all over the country every year. Volunteers can work in almost any division in the Park Service, such as Interpreation, Research, Resource Management, Maintenance, and much more. Anyone can volunteer at Petersburg, in fact, most of our one-time projects on the Volunteer page are great Eagle Scout projects. Petersburg National Battlefield would not be the Park it is today without the thousands of volunteers who have helped out over the years. If anyone is interested in volunteering, please contact the Park Volunteer Coordinator, Richard Hotchkiss at 804-732-3966, ext. 113.
In addition to Volunteer Positions, Petersburg National Battlefield offers Internships through the Student Conservation Association (SCA).
