The PAC hosts lots of volunteer opportunities in and around the DC, MD, VA metro area. As well as is a great resource for hiking on and around the AT.
The ATC is another good organization for resources on hiking the AT as well as for volunteer opportunities. Volunteer opportunities include their Trail Crews. Volunteers or Trail Crew Members arrive at base camp the first day and head out to the project site with their crew where they will camp, work, eat and hang out together for the 5 day project returning to base camp on the last day.
