About


The San Antonio Missions National Historical Park is looking for new volunteers!
The park will be hosting a two-day training for new Visitor Center/Mission Coverage Volunteers on February 25th and March 4th. Some of the volunteer duties include professionally representing the National Park Service, giving out information at our visitor center, answering questions both in person and over the phone, and general customer service. There is also potential to give guided programs in the future.

Volunteers are expected to work a 4 hour shift in the morning or afternoon at one of the four missions the National Park operates in San Antonio. The greatest need for volunteers at the San Antonio Missions are Saturday and Sunday, but there are opportunities to volunteer other days of the week. Potential volunteers will need to commit to a mandatory training on the dates mentioned above. After the initial training, we will require four additional half-day on the job training shifts on Saturday or Sunday, before taking on a permanent schedule.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer with the National Park Service and learning more about the history and culture of San Antonio, while protecting and preserving a World Heritage site, please email saan_volunteers@nps.gov by February 11th.
