Volunteers are an essential part of the Vicksburg National Military Park mission and programs. So much of what we do would not be possible without volunteers. The Volunteers-In-Parks (VIP) program was created to provide volunteer opportunities to members of the community that would be mutually beneficial to both the park and the volunteers.

There are several ways you can get involved with volunteering at the park. You can volunteer on a regular basis as a Photohgraphy VIP, Information Desk VIP, or Custodial Assistant VIP. Or, you can attend one of our community service events throughout the year.

All volunteer opportunties are posted on this webpage. If you don't see anything you are interested in, but would still like to volunteer, contact our volunteer coordinator, Molly at (601) 629-8133 or via email. We can try and find something just for you! Or, we can add you to our email list so you'll get massages any time we have a new event coming up!
