YLP offers a dynamic, hands-on, 12-week summer experience living and working in Yosemite National Park. Interns gain valuable professional and personal skills working alongside National Park and Park partner professionals. The opportunities are incredibly diverse and can prove beneficial to students regardless of their area of academic interest.
Students also participate in a two-credit environmental leadership seminar where they learn the basics of environmental awareness, stewardship and advocacy. This internship provides deeply impactful and life-changing experiences for students. It’s definitely an opportunity not to be missed!
