Show your love for the Appalachian Trail by volunteering for the A.T. Vista 2020 celebration.

The Trail Conference is hosting A.T. Vista 2020, a multi-day event celebrating the Appalachian Trail and A.T. Communities. It will be held July 31 through Aug. 3, 2020, at Ramapo College of New Jersey in Mahwah. As organizers, the Trail Conference’s A.T. Vista Steering Committee is looking for volunteers who can help ensure the event runs smoothly and, most importantly, is engaging and fun for all ages.

Volunteer opportunities for A.T. Vista 2020 range from helping at the registration desk during the event to running the committee in charge of planning and overseeing the conference’s full slate of activities including workshops, hikes, and excursions. We have positions available for all interests and time commitments. Meet people who not only share your passion for hiking but will be traveling from all over the country to take part in this event. Plus: Volunteering to help run a four-day event is a great resume-builder. The Trail Conference hosted a similar Appalachian Trail event in 2007, and the volunteers who ran it still remark about the skills they gained and how much they learned.
