Stewards VISTA: San Antonio (SAAN) Lead Volunteer Corps
In partnership, the National Park Service at San Antonio Missions National Historical Park (SAAN) and Stewards Individual Placement Program (Stewards) will provide a year-long opportunity for a young adult or veteran interested in parks that are enveloped in their community. As such, SAAN and Stewards will recruit a candidate that will assist in building local volunteer capacity to help restore healthy ecosystems and preserve historic resources, innovating and assist in creating a volunteer program that serves visitors and locals alike. The VISTA Project will create a “Lead Volunteer Corps” of (three to five) long-term volunteer leaders that will forge the way for San Antonio Missions National Historical Park’s (SAAN) volunteer program to flourish and represent the broader San Antonio Community. Lead Volunteer Corps members will come from a diverse set of backgrounds and skills. They will practice the ability to train, lead, and safely follow all NPS policies and procedures that are relevant to the work with which they engage. The initial focus of the Lead Volunteer Corps will be deferred maintenance, facilities maintenance, training and/or leading other volunteers, visitor services, education programming, partnerships, preservation, and conservation, providing valuable job skills to Lead Volunteer Corps members.
