Picture Yourself in a National Park!
Everyday someone like you becomes a wildland wildfire fighter, a teacher, a trail-builder, a museum curator, and a park ranger. And, like you, they were once earning scout badges and preparing for a career.
Whether you are 8 or 18 there is a national park opportunity for you. Come to play. Come to learn. Come to serve. Develop your environmental leadership skills. Find a job. Be the next generation to preserve and protect these great places.
Connecting Youth to Parks Guidebook is a downloadable resource that was created to help the public find information about programs and opportunities for youth offered by the National Park Service whether that visit is in-park or a virtual visit.
Watch videos created by and about National Park Service youth participants to see our programs in action across the country.
