Community Volunteer Ambassador Opportunities

Point Reyes National Seashore is recruiting for a Community Volunteer Ambassador intern (CVA) who will have service and career opportunities to strengthen communities and preserve natural resources. In particular, the CVA will work alongside park staff to develop, grow, and diversify the Visitor Services and Trail Patrol volunteer programs. The CVA will have ample opportunities to exercise program development skills, including identifying and devising new solutions and approaches, planning, and implementation. The CVA will also perform program administration by helping to manage the operations of both programs. The internship is a 1-year, paid internship for those 18 – 30 years old (35 years old if a veteran).

The internship starts on February 7, 2022. The CVA will receive:

  • Free housing
  • A baseline living allowance of $500/week
  • An AmeriCorps Award of $6,345 (pretax)
  • Public Land Corps Hiring Authority upon completion of the internship (non-competitive hiring status for federal jobs for two years following the completion of the internship)

The application due date is 12/17/2021, or until filled. See CVA Listings & How to Apply | Become a Community Volunteer Ambassador (cvainternships.org) for more information about the internship and how to apply.

Volunteer Opportunities

Point Reyes National Seashore volunteers are essential partners in maintaining and growing park projects, through promoting park stewardship, restoring habitat, monitoring species, and educating visitors. National Park Service (NPS) volunteers assist park staff with a variety of tasks, indoors and outdoors, as do Point Reyes National Seashore (PRNSA) volunteers.

Volunteering is a great way to learn more about the Seashore by going behind the scenes and connecting with others who care for this extraordinary land and seascape.

Everything from pulling invasive plants to monitoring special status species, assisting archeology and historic property projects, helping with visitor services and the park’s museum and archives, maintaining the native plant nursery, managing the vegetation team’s tool shed, and much more…all of it serves the park, the public, and the planet.

Every July, PRNSA and the NPS celebrate our volunteers and their many accomplishments by hosting them at the annual Volunteer Summer Celebration in the park. Other “perks” are available to volunteers, including the knowledge that their investment of time and energy has a very real and positive impact.

A creative, inclusive, and welcoming volunteer program is our mission; we invite you, your family, your community, and your group to explore Point Reyes and engage with us. Now more than ever, volunteers matter. Please join us!
