The Community Volunteer Ambassador Program is an innovative partnership between the National Park Service Volunteers-In-Parks Program and the Stewards Individual Placement Program of Conservation Legacy.

As a fifty-week professional internship for youth, young adults (ages 18-30 or 18-35 if veterans) from diverse backgrounds who aspire to a future career in service and conservation stewardship are eligible for this program. In 2022, Community Volunteer Ambassadors are heading to approximately ninety national park sites.

Through this unique opportunity, members are placed in park sites throughout the country to provide capacity-building services focused on connecting communities to parks through engagement and volunteerism activities. Upon completion of their term of service, members will be eligible for the Public Land Corps hiring authority and the AmeriCorps Segal education award.

The Community Volunteer Ambassador Program supports National Park Service initiatives to expand community engagement and volunteerism on our nation's public lands.
