The Latino Heritage Internship Program (LHIP) is managed by Environment for the Americas for National Park Service Youth Programs Division to provide young adults hands-on experience in a variety of career fields related to conservation. The program helps raise awareness of our public lands and their accessibility to all Americans, while also supporting the next generation of their stewards.

The Mosaics in Science Internship Program provides youth that are under-represented in natural resource science career fields with on-the-ground, science-based, work experience with the National Park Service. Established in 2013, this multidisciplinary program provides opportunities to work on inventorying and monitoring, research, GIS, and other technologies, and interpretation and education projects. The program is administered by the Geologic Resources Division, in collaboration with other NPS Natural Resource Stewardship and Science offices, the NPS Youth Programs Division, and in partnership withEnvironment for the Americas.

Youth Programs Division, National Park Service
There are many opportunities for youth and young adults 15 – 30 years old and veterans 35 years old and younger to work with the National Park Service. Many of these developmental opportunities and jobs are filled at the park level–so contact the park that interests you–but other opportunities are advertised and recruited nationally by the National Park Service or in partnership with youth and veteran serving organizations. We welcome the interest and engagement of the next generation of stewards who will care for our nation’s natural and cultural resources and preserve our rich legacy.
