Volunteers are needed across Virginia to spend the summer serving in state parks by connecting park guests to natural resources and leading trail improvement projects.
The Virginia State Parks AmeriCorps Volunteer Project provides 25 opportunities for part-time AmeriCorps members to serve in state parks between April and August 2016.
AmeriCorps members plan, develop and lead interpretive programs and help staff coordinate projects. They serve 675 hours and receive a bi-monthly living allowance. After completing a term of service, members are eligible to receive $2,182, which can be used for education expenses.
Those selected receive training on various subjects, including trail improvement, interpretive programming, customer service, volunteer management and watercraft skills.
Applications, filled on a first-come, first-served basis, can be found at www.americorps.gov. Program information is also available at www.virginiastateparks.gov.
