Volunteer Partnerships and Groups
Every year volunteers donate hundreds of hours to the Seashore through popular programs including our MLK service weekend, our Natural Resource Intern Program, and our Alternative Spring Break program.
Groups are limited to 25 people or less for logistics. Contact the Volunteer Coordinator at CUIS_volunteer@nps.gov to schedule and reserve your service project.
Alternative Spring Break. From March to May the Seashore is popular with those seeking warmth and a bit of hard work. During this time frame we accept work parties from up to three college and universities to spend their spring break giving back to the Park. If you are interested in how your school may participate in this program, please contact us at the information listed above.
Scouts: We are proud to partner with Boy Scouts of America and Girl Scout for service and education projects year round.
Navy: We are fortunate enough to have great neighbors and volunteers in the U.S. Navy. These fine men and women proudly continue to serve their community and country volunteering on the island.
