Tremont loves its volunteers and would not be able to accomplish its goals without their dedicated help. We are always looking for new volunteers who appreciate the wonders of Great Smoky Mountains National Park and stand behind our mission to connect people with nature. Sometimes, there are special projects that we just can’t accomplish without the help of others.

Needs include data entry, office assistance, cleaning and facilities maintenance, photography, representing Tremont at community events, event coordination and management, fundraising, online sharing and promotions, kitchen assistance, hospitality and more.

Let us know if you’d like to help by filling out our volunteer application. Once received, we’ll add you to our volunteer email list for announcements on upcoming projects, trainings and opportunities. When you see something you can help with, simply reply to that email. Thank you in advance!

Annual Volunteer Day

Don't miss this fun opportunity to help! This is the day we all come together to knock out as many facilities/maintenance projects as we can together in one day. We'll start around 9AM and end around 4PM with lunch served mid-day. Come join us in jumping in the largest leaf pile you'll ever see, and make a big difference for the Tremont team.

This year's Volunteer Day is November 18, 2017. Visit http://gsmit.org/event/volunteer-day/ to sign up.
