Youth Leadership Program

Our energetic Youth Leaders are 4th-12th grade volunteers that serve as National Park Trust Student Ambassadors. These students are active outdoors and share their experiences online to educate and inspire children and families across the country to enjoy the benefits of our natural, cultural, and historical parks — and give back to our public lands through service.  

Kids need parks and parks need kids! To learn more about these volunteer positions, contact our Youth Programs Manager, Emily Swanzy, at Please note, new Ambassadors are recruited over the summer and added at the start of each academic year.
