WildLink Alumni Explore Yosemite Careers

Youth explore National Park Service careers with WildLink Bridge.

Youth who have completed a WildLink program have the opportunity to further their educational and professional development with WildLink Bridge. WildLink alumni spend two weeks in Yosemite participating in an intense hands-on orientation program that inspires them to consider careers in Yosemite. The program includes meeting with more than 30 professionals who work and live in Yosemite, as well as participating in restoration field projects and completing a wilderness patrol.

This program provides a much-needed bridge from the WildLink expedition to career opportunities for these diverse and underserved teens. Creating a sense of home within national parks is critical to creating the next generation of park stewards. Many WildLink Bridge alumni go on to seek careers in related fields.

Thanks to your support, teens have a crucial link from education to careers in Yosemite.

The Bridge program changed me. Now feel like I am part of Yosemite, and it is my duty to take care of these beautiful places for future generations.
