Stewards Individual Placements provides individuals with service and career opportunities to strengthen communities and preserve our natural resources. The Community Volunteer Ambassador (CVA) Program combines the strength of a national leader in conservation service with the National Park Service to train a diverse group of emerging leaders to assist park units in building lasting connections to communities. 

\n

 

\n

The CVA at Ste. Genevieve NHP will assist the Interpretive Program Manager and the Volunteer Coordinator with developing the framework of a new volunteer program. The CVA will have a chance to work alongside park staff from all divisions, learn about careers in the federal government and non-profits, and be a part of the early stages of a park unit’s development. 

\n

 

\n

Site Description: 

\n

Ste. Genevieve National Historical Park (Ste. Genevieve NHP) is one of the newest National Park Service sites in the country. Established in October of 2020, it is located in Ste. Genevieve, MO, about an hour south of St. Louis. The park shares the history of French colonialism in the Middle Mississippi River Valley through three historic homes dating to the 1790s. The history of Ste. Genevieve over the last 200+ years is as diverse and complex as its residents. Today, many members of the local community still have long-standing family ties to the historic homes and are personally interested in the park’s development.   

\n

 

\n

As a new park, Ste. Genevieve NHP is in the early stages of developing a volunteer program. Once established, a volunteer program will provide another way for the residents of Ste. Genevieve to continue to engage with their community’s history. It will also provide avenues for individuals in the surrounding area to find their own connections to the past, become stewards, and explore NPS careers.
