The National Park Service seeks to build volunteer capacity within Seattle/Tacoma communities with the support of the National Park Foundation and American Express. Mount Rainier National Park and Seattle Area National Park Sites are partnering to expand volunteer efforts to engage new audiences in this area, including American Express employees. The National Park Service relies heavily on its volunteer force to help preserve and protect the nation’s natural and cultural resources.

The coordinator will build partnerships with local community organizations; spearhead the development of multi-language, multi-cultural digital and printed informational materials about the National Park Service; and facilitate partner organization volunteer experiences to Mount Rainier National Park and Seattle Area National Park Sites, including: Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park; the Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience; and the Bainbridge Island Japanese American Exclusion Memorial.
This is a full-time, one year position based at Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park in Seattle with frequent trips to Mount Rainier National Park. The Community Volunteer Coordinator will join a collaborative team dedicated to increasing inclusivity and diversity in our public lands.
