Support a Student

The National Parks and Historic Sites supported by The African American Experience Fund have the power to change lives.  By walking in the footsteps of great inventors, business pioneers, literary geniuses and change agents, students are instilled with a sense of educational excellence and have a better understanding of African American contributions to our nation's history.

Each year thousands of people take time to show their love for national parks through volunteering. At a time when many national parks are strained by lack of resources and staff, volunteers provide an invaluable service and help ensure that these special places will continue to be cherished for generations to come. From clearing trails to assisting archaeologists to providing visitor information, our national parks could use your help.

The National Park Foundation is proud to work with the National Park Service to present opportunities for volunteers around the country. Discover how you can help today »
