Volunteer Interpretive Park Guide - Klondike Gold Rush NHP - Seattle
ORGANIZATION: National Park Service
Please visit the new page to apply.
A genuine desire to ensure that each visitor has an enjoyable experience at Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park is essential. Volunteers must be flexible enough to handle variations in work routine caused by shifting priorities and visitor needs.
Specific Requirements: Be comfortable communicating to the public information about the park and area points of interest, available services, rules and guidelines, maps or directions, etc. Work well with co-workers. Share new and important information with co-workers and visitors. Represent the National Park Service while providing visitor contacts maintaining a professional demeanor. Answer recurring visitor questions. Resolve customer or visitor complaints by taking corrective action or referring the issue to a supervisor when appropriate. Show understanding, friendliness, courtesy, tact, empathy, concern, and politeness to others. Relate well to people from varied backgrounds and different situations.
Current visitor center hours are 10AM - 5PM, Fri/Sat/Sun. Days/hours may be expanded as the city and region relax pandemic restrictions and visitation increases. We are expecting a vibrant cruise season this year, our biggest source if visitation in the summer.
Volunteers interested in conducting ranger-style interpretive programs utilizing NPS-style techniques may have the opportunity when it's safe to do so as per CDC guidelines. Many NPS volunteers go on to rewarding careers in the national parks!
Volunteers who earn 250 or more hours can receive a pass entitling them to free entry to all Federal lands for 12 months. The Volunteer Pass is honored nationwide at all National Park Service, Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service areas where standard amenity fees are charged.
