Harpers Ferry National Historical Park seeks volunteers

Harpers Ferry National Historical Park is seeking volunteers to welcome visitors to one of America’s treasures. Located at the scenic confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers, Harpers Ferry offers breath-taking vistas and over 250 years of unparalleled history. Volunteers at the Visitor Center and Information Center are in constant contact with visitors from across the nation, answering questions of both national significance and local interest. Volunteers also work outside as roving ambassadors along sidewalks and trails, keeping a watchful eye on the park resources, meeting visitors informally and helping visitors from around the world have an enjoyable park experience.

Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, in general good health, flexible, and adaptable to ever-changing situations and audiences. It is important to be comfortable speaking in public and working with a variety of people. Volunteers are needed to work one four-hour shift per week from June 13 through August 15. Uniform shirts, training and reading material will be provided.

If you are interested in joining the visitor services team at Harpers Ferry or would like to learn more about this experience, please contact David Fox at 304-535-6282 or david_fox@nps.gov.
