Volunteer at the
National World War II Memorial
We Need You!
The National World War II Memorial celebrates a generation of Americans who emerged from the Depression and united to fight and win the most devastating war in world history.
You can be a volunteer at the National World War II Memorial and enable visitors to enhance their experience in understanding what the Memorial is about and how it relates to a very special time in American History.
Volunteers interact with veterans and their families as they come to visit the Memorial built in their honor.
Each volunteer must first register with the National Park Service as part of their Volunteers-In-Parks (VIP) program. As a volunteer with the NPS you will spend time at the Memorial assisting visitors, answering questions, and presenting interpretive talks about the Memorial.
How to become a volunteer: Contact George Kerestes, Volunteer Coordinator of the Friends of The National World War II Memorial at: firstname.lastname@example.org
He will be happy to highlight the many advantages of becoming a volunteer at the Memorial, provide you with the NPS application and put you in contact with the NPS Volunteer Coordinator.Volunteer Online to Help the National WWII Memorial
