Share Your Passion

Help visitors get the best experience in Yosemite by sharing your park knowledge. Visitor information assistants spend a month helping visitors enjoy Yosemite’s natural, cultural and educational activities in various locales throughout the park.

Most work schedules are 32 hours per week with time off to explore the park. All participants receive online and on-site training. They enjoy free entrance into the park; camping at shared or individual campsites in Yosemite Valley, Tuolumne Meadows and Wawona; a 30 percent discount on books and educational materials at Yosemite Conservancy bookstores; and discounts from the park concessioner in various locations.
