The National Park Service (NPS) in partnership with the Student Conservation Association (SCA) and AmeriCorps developed the Centennial Volunteer Ambassador Program to place year long interns week at NPS sites around the country to connect more people to their national parks through expanding service-learning, service and community engagement programs and activities.
About the National Park Service (NPS)
The National Park Service preserves unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the National Park System for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations. The Park Service cooperates with partners to extend the benefits of natural and cultural resource conservation and outdoor recreation throughout this country and the world.
Since 1916, the American people have entrusted the National Park Service with the care of their national parks. With the help of volunteers and park partners, we safeguard these more than 400 places and share their stories with more than 275 million visitors every year. But our work doesn’t stop there.
Taking care of the national parks and helping Americans take care of their communities is a job we love, and we need—and welcome—your help and support. To learn more about the National Park Service, visit http://www.nps.gov.
