Build relationships that will expand educational opportunities offered at Cuyahoga Valley National Park!
The Division of Interpretation, Education, and Visitor Services (IEVS) at Cuyahoga Valley National Park provides National Park Service leadership in Visitor Services, Interpretation, and Education that sparks a connection between visitor interests and resource meanings to inspire enjoyment, appreciation, understanding, and stewardship. Through our leadership, all visitors have a positive experience and attain an understanding of the park, joining a community of park stewards.
The park currently has multiple programs that have been running independently of each other for decades that provide educational and service-learning programming separately to youth and adults in order to empower community members with the skills, background, and knowledge to provide service to their own communities through environmental stewardship projects. This position will bridge the gap to integrate the two curriculums by working with internal and external organizational partners, local school districts, and governmental agencies.
Bachelor's degree in a field of study that could include: Education, Natural Sciences, Anthropology, Recreation/Park Management, Communications, Interpretation.
