This exciting opportunity is a partnership between SF State University, the National Park Service, and the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy. The
Academic Internship Program is a semester-long internship at the Golden Gate National Parks that encourages student interns to expand their learning and knowledge outside of the classroom while earning a stipend and academic credit. Student interns support the parks through various capacities such as youth and community engagement, habitat restoration, business management, law enforcement, historical interpretation, and more.
