Special internship programs in the park include:
Yosemite sponsors a number of internships both directly and through partner organizations. What's the difference between a volunteer internship and other internships? Volunteer Internships are full-time (40 hour/week) career-development positions with an educational component. The positions are usually 10 weeks to six months, and are open to people of all ages.They should not be confused with federal internships in the Pathways program, which may be paid positions and last for varying amounts of time. The park also recruits through partners.

These may include positions in wildlife research, environmental education, historic preservation, and other professional and vocational career fields. International Volunteers may apply for internships, but must be able to obtain a J-1 visa and should be working or studying in a related field.
