Volunteers in National Park Service (NPS) sites support the parks and their employees in carrying out the dual mission of protecting America's natural and cultural resources and providing recreational opportunities for the public. Volunteers at NPS sites are called Volunteers-In-Parks, or VIPs.

At Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site, volunteers work with National Park Service employees in various capacities. VIPs work on weekdays and weekends, mornings and afternoons, usually in four hour segments. Training for all duties is provided. Uniforms are provided for volunteers who work with the public.

Some of the volunteer opportunities at the park include:

  • Greeting visitors at the Information Desk
  • Conducting tours of White Haven
  • Roving interpretation in the museum
  • Maintenance
  • Library and research
  • Curatorial assistance
  • General office work
