Inspire Young Artists

Use your talents to help young Yosemite visitors experience the park through our popular children’s art classes. You’ll provide crucial support to Yosemite Conservancy’s art programs while working closely with our team at Happy Isles Art and Nature Center.


As a volunteer youth art teacher, you’ll prepare and implement age-appropriate art classes for young visitors (age 4-12) during the summer season.

Our volunteer youth art teachers live in the park for a month and work a 32-hour week with time off to explore the park. They receive on-site training by Yosemite Conservancy and the National Park Service, and enjoy free entrance into the park and camping in group campsites. They also receive a 30 percent discount on books and educational materials sold at Yosemite Conservancy bookstores, as well as discounts from the park concessioner in various park locations.
