Community Volunteer Ambassadors are recent high school and college graduates brought together through an innovative public-private partnership between the National Park Service, Northwest Youth Corps, and Stewards Individual Placement Program.

Through this partnership, 53 Community Volunteer Ambassadors will spend one year in national park sites across the country; lending their talents, energy, and enthusiasm to strengthen the bonds between communities and parks. Their efforts will focus on expanding service-learning and volunteer opportunities; coordinating group volunteer service days—with a special emphasis on Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, National Public Lands Day, National Trails Day, and Veterans Day; sharing information about volunteer opportunities in communities; and engaging current volunteers in new opportunities.

This partnership supports Department of the Interior initiatives to expand educational, volunteer, and career opportunities for millions of youth and veterans on our nation's public lands. Learn more about this program and find out how you can get involved!

A welcome goes out to the 2018 Community Volunteer Ambassador Corps!
