Work, and learn, outside this summer
Virginia state parks are recruiting for this summer’s AmeriCorps Interpretive Project. Those chosen for the program will be placed in 27 parks. They’ll receive interpretive training, and “develop volunteer management, customer service and water craft skills,” according to a press release. They’ll serve 675 hours between April and September, helping parks’ staff with programs for visitors. AmeriCorps participants receive a $3,000 living allowance and $2,038 educational award.
