Opportunities For Youth

There are thousands of opportunities for high school, college, and graduate school students to work with the National Park Service.

Many of these jobs are filled at the park level, so contact the park that interests you. Others are advertised and recruited nationally by the National Park Service or in partnership with several national organizations.

We welcome the interest and involvement of the next generation who will help us care for our nation's environment and preserve her history. Ready to go? Learn more about opportunities for youth and students.
