The Golden Gate Park Internship Experience (GOGA PIE) at the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Fort Point National Historic Site, and Muir Woods National Monument is a partnership program of the National Park Service (NPS) and the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy (GGNPC). It is a cornerstone park program, providing professional development and career pathway opportunities for youth and young adults, while supporting real needs of park management. A wide range of positions are available, including those working with business management, education and youth programs, volunteer program management, communications and media, natural and cultural resources, historical interpretation, public affairs, park planning, and more. Internships vary in length and can be part-time to full-time. They incorporate specialized training, professional skill building, and career development. Internships are immersive experiences, where interns learn by working with staff mentors to support critical park projects, while also bringing new ideas and a renewed energy to our park and staff. Together with our partners we are fostering a passion for our parks and open space, investing in our community, and cultivating our future work force.
The National Park Service collaborates with a selection of youth partner organizations to create internship opportunities. Our youth partners provide the backbone support so that the National Park Service staff are able to provide the "in-the-field" mentorship to all our interns.
