National Park Service units are critical contributors to America’s educational ecosystem as places for lifelong learning. The NPS develops and nurtures lifelong connections between the public and parks through a continuum of engaging recreational, educational, service, and work experiences. This AmeriCorps VISTA position is located within the NPS Intermountain Regional Office - Division of Interpretation, Education, Youth and Volunteers. The position will assist in the creation of a region-wide volunteer program management structure that helps local parks meet priority needs, connect with communities, and provide unique experiences to local communities. You will collaborate with internal and external stakeholders to: 1) Establish regional standards of practice in volunteer management, support, and resources; 2) Identify and strengthen partnerships to assist with funding and resource development; 3) Strengthen access to park resources for educational use, job skills development, and career exploration for youth and young adults; 4) Formulate new and creative ways for community members to access park resources; and 5) Assist the growth of priority initiatives within the region as identified by local parks and communities. This position does not include housing, but does include a housing stipend. There will be many opportunities for professional development, as well as networking with 84 national park units and many local, regional, and national non-profit partner organizations.
