If you decide to volunteer to help meet the Forest Service mission, you will have some great opportunities to diversify your job experience, provide community service, meet people, and form new friendships.
The Forest Service uses volunteers for a variety of programs.

The types of projects depend on funding, the work that needs to be done, and the complexity of the project.
Some volunteers work full time for several months, while others donate a few hours each week or contribute a one-time service.
Students may volunteer to earn college credits through a college-approved intern program, or to become familiar with Forest Service activities and philosophy. Many individuals have found that their volunteer experience has guided them toward job interest and possible careers.
