Development and support of VIP Docents

The Volunteers-In-Parks (VIP) Program supplies the San Antonio Missions with professional docents who provide important visitor services at the four Spanish Missions. The goal is for VIPs to offer timely details and information about the Park’s resources upon the visitors’ arrival. The Mission Heritage Partners provides a variety of funds to support the VIP Program, underwriting background checks, purchasing uniforms and nametags, providing training, recognition events and supplies the volunteers need during their activities. Volunteers at the Park contribute in excess of 10,600 hours annually, the equivalent of more than five permanent, full-time employees.
