If you are a youth age 16-26 with a passion for the outdoors and a desire to share that passion, Virginia State Parks has a volunteer opportunity just for you.
Most of our Virginia State Parks have recruited Youth Ambassadors. You may have seen some of the articles we have posted about these appointments. However, we still have ten of our state parks that have not found a volunteer to fill this role.
Parks still in need of Youth Ambassadors include:
State Parks Youth Ambassadors will collaborate on a statewide media and marketing program promoting outdoor recreation in our state parks. Ambassadors will document their outdoor experiences and capture all of life’s adventures from the extreme to the everyday with this youth partnership. We are looking for the best and the brightest outdoor enthusiasts and advocates to bring the stories of the parks to the public.
For more information about this exciting program and how to get involved contact the Virginia State Parks Office of Community Engagement and Volunteerism by e-mailing [email protected]. Only two individuals can be selecting for a park and we currently have ambassadors for all of our other parks.
