Friends of VI National Park Accepting Applications for Summer Trail Crew

Friends of Virgin Islands National Park

Friends of Virgin Islands National Park on St. John is now accepting applications for its popular Summer Trail Crew.  This summer job opportunity is an eight-week program running from June 26 to Aug. 4 and is open to Virgin Islands high school students, ages 15 to 18.

This is an opportunity for students to gain professional experience, develop leadership skills, work outdoors as part of a team and learn about Virgin Islands National Park. This summer work experience focuses on the maintenance of hiking trails and historic sites in the park; potential duties include digging, sawing, pruning, hauling and other physical tasks. Every Friday is a paid vacation day that includes activities like kayaking, a boat excursion, and learning about traditional uses of local plants and marine ecosystems.

More information and application forms can be found on the Friends of Virgin Islands National Park’s website at www.friendsVINP.org/summer-trail-crew
