Haleakalā National Park is accepting internship applications for its yearlong Community Volunteer Ambassador Program. The CVA intern will help to expand the park’s service-learning, community engagement and volunteer programs.

“Haleakalā National Park is looking for an enthusiastic young conservationist who  is committed to strengthening the bonds between the local Maui community and the park,” the park said in a press release announcement.
