Have you ever thought about volunteering at a National Park? Would you like to give back to your community? Castillo de San Marcos and Fort Matanzas National Parks need your help!
Come out to the Volunteer “Job Fair” in front of the Castillo and meet experienced VIPs (Volunteers-In-Parks) from both parks. Chat with them about what they do and why they love it. Get information on how you can get involved!
VIPs perform a wide range of tasks at our parks, including historic weapons demonstrations, deckhanding on a ferry boat, operating a visitor center, keeping our beaches clean, giving interpretive programs, assisting with administrative services, and helping visitors get the most out of their experience. They gain experience in public speaking and communicating with visitors from around the world. Volunteer hours can also be put towards scholarship requirements for school.
