Looking for something to do this summer? There are many openings here at @BalboaPark for employment, internships, and volunteer opportunities. There are positions both indoors, and outdoors, and sometimes both! You can volunteer for a day, or longer! Plant a tree, give directions, work on a vintage carousel…The opportunities are endless! If you love the whole of Balboa Park, the Visitor Center and Balboa Park Conservancy and Friends of Balboa Park are always looking for volunteers. If you have a certain Museum or organization you are passionate about, then check their individual website for openings. For instance, the Timken Museum of Art is currently looking for Education, Development, Special Events, and Visitor Experience Interns, where you can get some valuable experience under your belt. You can also check for a general list of job opportunities. Come spend your day at beautiful Balboa Park, making a difference, and getting a great experience, and a wealth of knowledge!
