Did you know that the Golden Gate National Parks is the largest national park in an urban setting in the country and located only within a few miles of your school?! This vast park extends across three Bay Area counties and includes amazing places such as Alcatraz, Crissy Field, Fort Funston, Marin Headlands, and Muir Woods. By becoming an intern, you will have the opportunity to experience these spectacular parklands first hand, behind the scenes and in depth. We have internship positions in the fields of interpretation, restoration and monitoring, youth programs, volunteer management, projects and planning, business management, media and design, and much more.

As an Intern you will receive:

  • $50 daily stipend (per 8 hours).
  • Real work experience.
  • Professional & educational development.
  • Potential for future job opportunities.
  • Academic credit possible (student responsible for confirming eligibility).
  • The enjoyment of working in a beautiful park.
  • Real-life experience with a network of people who love their jobs.

This exciting program is a partnership of the National Park Service, Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, San Francisco State University and City College of San Francisco.
