Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace Interpretive Volunteer
ORGANIZATION: National Park Service
Please visit the new page to apply.
Working closely with the rangers at Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace National Historic Site, volunteers will assist in operating tours, museum services, and book store sales. Volunteers will be relied upon as stewards of the historic home and a source of knowledge about Theodore Roosevelt's life and legacy, in particular that of his childhood and family, as well as their brownstone townhouse and its furnishings. Work will be public-facing and mostly indoors. Training materials and time on or off-site will be provided to the volunteer to promote site knowledge before public interactions. A uniform will be provided and will be required during working hours. This site requires a minimum of 4 service hours biweekly, but a schedule can be agreed upon with site volunteer coordinator. Volunteer will need to coordinate their own transportation to and from the site. The N, R, W, L, 4, 5, and 6 trains, and the M-1, M-2, M-3, M-5, and M-23 buses run very close by.
