Position Overview

Stewards Individual Placements provides individuals with service and career opportunities to strengthen communities and preserve our natural resources. The Community Volunteer Ambassador (CVA) Program combines the strength of a national leader in conservation service with the National Park Service in order to train a diverse group of emerging leaders to assist park units in building lasting connections to local communities.

The CVA Leaders demonstrate experience and leadership as they provide peer-like support to members at host sites and are an advocate for CVA interests in volunteer program operations. Working closely with NPS staff and partnering organizations, the CVA Leaders are assigned project work that assists with the development and implementation of structured programming and training activities related to CVA operations and support of the Volunteers-In-Parks program, both in their region and service-wide. The CVA Leaders model professionalism and reports directly to the Servicewide Volunteers-In-Parks Program Manager or Regional Coordinator within their region.

The Community Volunteer Ambassador program seeks interested applicants who have prior National Service (such as AmeriCorps, AmeriCorps NCCC, AmeriCorps VISTA, and Peace Corps) and/or conservation corps or government experience and who have demonstrated leadership and facilitation skills. Applicants must be between the ages of 18 and 30 years old; be a U.S. citizen, U.S. national or lawful permanent resident alien; and have a valid U.S. driver's license. Preference is given to applicants with at least one year prior experience in the CVA Program. The position will be offered either remotely or for a blend of in-person and telework; candidate preference will be discussed at interview.
