Education Program Support - Spanish

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: National Park Service

Please note that we are only looking to recruit volunteers who can speak Spanish. Please indicate your experience with speaking Spanish and translating on your application.


Do you speak Spanish? ┬┐Hablas espa├▒ol? Are you local to the east side of Rocky Mountain National Park?

Rocky is looking to recruit volunteers to assist with our winter education programs. Each year, hundreds of school children visit the park to participate in guided snowshoe hikes, science activities, and other programs. In order to better serve these students, we are looking to provide additional language support through volunteers. School field trips will be led by park staff, with volunteers translating from English to Spanish, and vice versa.


Volunteers can expect to work 2-8 days each month, depending on availability. There are no field trips on weekends; volunteer shifts will be Monday-Friday . You will be notified of a schedule ~2 weeks in advance. Shifts are typically 8am-3pm.


Volunteers will get to participate in snowshoe hikes at a variety of locations throughout the park. Snowshoes will be provided, when necessary. Volunteers will also be provided with a uniform winter jacket and a hat, but may need to supply other components on their own.


Please note that there is no housing available in association with this opportunity. We are hoping to recruit volunteers who are local to the Estes Park area and the Front Range.
