State parks opportunity
Want to work outside and earn some educational benefits while doing it? Virginia State Parks are looking for applicants to serve as AmeriCorps members from April to September 2011.
They would serve as park interpreters and present nature and cultural programs to guests, and train in interpretation techniques, learn about stewardship ethics and help visitors connect to natural and cultural resources.
The project will add 34 interpreters to the state park system.
They’ll receive a living allowance and be eligible for an education award at the end of their service. AmeriCorps is a division of the Corporation for National and Community Service. For more information, click here.
