ODY Volunteers giving a talk


Other great ways to work with the National Parks is to volunteer! Volunteers gain real work experience and valuable job skills that can be added to your resume or scholarship application. Fill out and print the VIP Application and send to the Volunteer Coordinator for review.

High school and college students can volunteer directly through the park, the local Office of Dine' Youth, the Navajo Nation Workforce Development Office or the Chinle Chapter's Summer Youth Employment Program. Some tribal agencies pay students to work within the community including the park. Ask us about volunteer opportunities at Canyon de Chelly!
