Centennial Volunteer Ambassadors: The overall mission of the NPS Centennial Volunteer Ambassador Program is to support park units service-wide in expanding volunteerism, service-learning, and community engagement programs and activities to new audiences and communities. The program will allow the NPS to help develop the next generation of lifelong conservation stewards and ensure a skilled and diverse workforce pipeline, through work & training opportunities for young adults and veterans.
