2018 Hawai`i Island Youth Ranger Program

The Hawaii Island Youth Ranger Internship Program returns for the summer of 2018! This is a great opportunity for our youth to have hands-on experience in the five national parks on Hawaii Island.
The program begins with eight two-hour training sessions held over eight weeks at local schools in the districts served (e.g., Kealakehe or Konawaena High Schools). Participants are trained in park resources, the mission and history of the NPS and professional skills including financial awareness and public speaking.  Successful trainees are encouraged to apply for jobs in the interpretation division and are selected for employment at one of the five Hawaii Island National Park Services (NPS) units. At the end of the 8-week summer employment opportunity, top youth are often retained through park funding and some move on to temporary or permanent positions with the NPS.

Please see the attached flyer about how to apply. 2018 YIP Flyer WEST Hawaii

Application deadline: January 10, 2018.
