Free leadership training, mountain biking, backpacking, fishing, and the opportunity to represent your favorite Texas park. That’s what’s included in the Texas State Park Ambassador program… and better yet, it’s now accepting applications.
The Texas State Park Ambassador program is open to Texans ages 18 to 30. Each ambassador is assigned to represent a state park for the summer and fall, helping to inspire a love for our state’s parks amongst other young people.
Here’s what the program entails:
- An intensive 5-day overnight leadership training course at South Llano River State Park
- 40 volunteer hours, dedicated to encouraging the use and protection of state parks amongst fellow young Texans
- Social media work in promoting the park you’ve been assigned to
