Theodore Roosevelt did his part during the Spanish American War by forming a regiment known as the 'Rough Riders', 1st United States Volunteer Cavalry. You can do your part by volunteering at Sagamore Hill National Historic Site!

Sagamore Hill could not function as it does today without its volunteers. Our volunteer program allows the site's staff to accomplish a wide range of activities that need to be done, but cannot always be done with limits on money and person-power.A core group of over sixty volunteers - retirees, parents, high school and college students –contributed over 8,000 hours of effort with a value of $100,000 dollars last year to Sagamore Hill. Volunteers provide tours to thousands of visitors and school children each year, answer telephones, and greet visitors at the museum. They catalog and care for thousands of papers and museum objects related to the Roosevelt family. Volunteers also perform much needed maintenance on the fences, fields, structures and infrastructure of Sagamore Hill. Their efforts allow park staff to focus on long-term projects, planning, and many other tasks.

At this time, Sagamore Hill is not recruiting new volunteers.

If you’re interested in looking for other volunteer opportunities, either locally or throughout the United States, you can check www.volunteer.gov or www.serve.gov.
