Summer 2019 Internship • June - August • 10 - 15 hours/week

Interested in joining a group of committed individuals who care for their community and environment? Excited to learn just what it takes to run a non-profit? Hudson Crossing Park is the place for you!

This paid internship opportunity offers students the opportunity to receive practical training in nonprofit administration and educational programming. Interns will have the opportunity to create and implement outreach programming designed to engage park visitors of all ages, take part in the planning and implementation of special events, and be a part of the Hudson Crossing Park public outreach team. Interns could also work on design, marketing, and research based projects that meet the needs of both the individual and Hudson Crossing Park. Specific opportunities and schedule can be based on individuals strengths and needs. Interns will work closely with the Director, Education Coordinators, Hudson Crossing board members, and volunteers. Some weekends/evenings may apply based on event schedule.

Interns must be reliable, motivated, able to work independently, and have their own transportation. Interns will receive a stipend of $120-$180 per week, depending on schedule. Applicants must be 18 years or older by June 1, 2019.

All interested candidates should send a resume and cover letter to Kate Morse, Director, at kmorse@hudsoncrossingpark.org.

Hudson Crossing is a thriving park that attracts thousands of visitors each year. Some come to walk or bike the trails, others enjoy Hudson River and Champlain Canal access, and still more enjoy the play garden, walking labyrinth, picnic pavilion, and special events.  

Hudson Crossing Park wasn’t always so vibrant. Nearly twenty years ago a group of like-minded volunteers saw the potential of unused and neglected land as a perfect location for a community park that could provide a welcome spot to enjoy the natural beauty of the area. It is thanks the tireless efforts of these volunteers that Hudson Crossing Park exists today, but the work is not done.

Hudson Crossing Park, which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is still in need of volunteers to help keep the park running, from those who are interested in weeding garden areas to assisting during events or educational programs, to those with special skillsets such as grant writing, graphic design, or fundraising.

If you or someone you know are interested in helping, please fill out the short volunteer interest form via the button below and help Hudson Crossing Park continue to grow!

 

Whether you’re a part of a club, group, business, family, or an individual looking to give back, Hudson Crossing Park has a volunteer opportunity that is right for you.

With the Adopt-a-Spot program volunteers sign up to care for specific areas of the park. This can include planting, weeding, raking, picking up litter, and more…and the best part is, you can do it on your own schedule!

Adopt-a-Spot volunteers and organizations are recognized with a sign posted in their spot thanking them for helping to keep the park beautiful, listed on our website “Sponsors & Supporters” page, and invited to the annual HCP Family appreciation event every July.
