In 2008, 120,000 volunteers built trails and bridges, removed trash and invasive plants and planted over 1.6 million trees.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics calculates the national value per volunteer hour is $19.51. Federal and state parks have discovered the value of rv volunteers. We hope cities will recognize how rv volunteers could provide much needed people power for their cash strapped governments and over burdened volunteer organizations.
To accomplish this relationship cities must first build designated rv campsites in key locations throughout the cities. Placed near museums, libraries, parks, hospitals, government buildings, gardens, etc..
It is our firm belief that cities willing and able to provide the RV sites in exchange for an expanded quality workforce will find, just as state and national parks have found, exchanging RV sites for volunteer hours, is a most beneficial arrangement.
