NPS Youth Programs

Youth from the city can connect with national parks too!! This week, as a part of our NPS Academy program, students are exploring the parks and sites of NYC Harbor and learning about the National Park Service. Here, the future interns learn about how Rangers deal with visitors at @statueellisnps #NPSYouth #YouthinParks #NPSAcademy15
As one week of #npsacademy15 ends in @grandtetonnps , THREE more begin in Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Tennessee), Kenai Fjords National Park (Alaska, pictured), and the national parks of New York Harbor! More awesome pictures in the week to come! #NPSYouth
#npsacademy15 students learn about a different culture during their orientation week as they "Connect to People," one of the themes of the program. #NPSYouth

Yes, we're on Instagram! It seemed a bit weird that NPS Youth Programs wouldn't be on the social media platform that youth use the most, but we have arrived! What did we miss? Feel free to tag us in photos of youth playing, learning, serving, and working in parks! Use our hashtags #YouthInParks #NPSYouth You may see your face shared on our page!
