The Trust for the National Mall and the National Park Service are seeking applicants for the Volunteers-in-Parks (VIP) program, which enlists volunteers to assist and educate visitors on the National Mall. Volunteers give interactive educational tours, engage visitors, and assist the public with general inquiries, information and directions. They work directly with NPS personnel and receive training on National Mall history, the Trust for the National Mall, tour management, National Mall attractions, and the local flora and fauna. Volunteers must be at least 21 years of age, available for a minimum of two days per month in whole or half-day increments, and interested in a long-term commitment. Applicants should have teaching, docent, or public speaking experience and an interest in or knowledge of American history and Washington, DC.
