Acadia National Park is now accepting applications for interns for its education programs, which provide hands-on experience working with 3rd-8th grade school groups.

Interns work with park staff in preparing and presenting curriculum-based programs that focus on natural science or human history. Spring positions run from April 2 – June 8. Fall positions take place in September through October. Longer fall internships are also available with Acadia’s residential program at the Schoodic Education and Research Center (SERC).

Qualified applicants should relate well to children, have a sense of curiosity, and enjoy the physical and mental demands of teaching outdoors. Benefits include two weeks of training, free housing, a $100 weekly stipend (32 hours), a uniform allowance, and bookstore discount.
