Center Tallahassee, FL
The mission of the Southeast Archeological Center (SEAC) is to provide the best archeological and collections management assistance possible to national parks and partners.
The SEAC CVA will assist in recruiting, organizing, and incorporating volunteers into ongoing projects at SEAC to accomplish our mission of protecting and preserving cultural resources. Volunteers directly affect our ability to conduct archaeological field work, lab work, research, and other aspects of cultural resource protection. Volunteers enable us to undertake more projects and accomplish more cultural resource management. The CVA will organize programs and recruit volunteers to contribute to our goals. The CVA will develop and review current volunteer procedures and policies.

Cumberland Island is the largest barrier island off the coast of Georgia, encompassing more than 36,000 acres of maritime forests, salt marsh and beaches. The island is also home to over 9,800 acres of federally designated wilderness.
The CVA will serve as part of the volunteer management team and play a key role in volunteer recruitment, training, scheduling, recognition and program management. The CVA will work with local educational partners and the park Education Technician to create a service learning program on the island.
The park offers a number of ranger-led interpretive and educational programs on and off the island. The CVA will be trained by NPS staff and be a full team member of the interpretation, education and visitor services division. Opportunities for professional development will be available throughout the internship.
