first-day-smiles-6-4-16Love Washington Square Park? Looking for a unique volunteer opportunity?

The Washington Square Park Conservancy (WSPC) is accepting new volunteers into its Greeter-Guide Program, a volunteer experience in which you will interact with Park users, helping them learn about the exciting horticulture, history, events, and culture that the Park has to offer. From our resident hawks to the coveted Arch, the Park has many stories to be told!

Following our first season in the park, we’re looking for new volunteers to participate in service to the park. Volunteers accepted into the program will participate in an extensive orientation including lectures, tours, and practice sessions. Once complete, volunteers may also train to lead tours of the park.

Applications are due March 1. Visit our volunteer page to learn more about the application process and requirements. You can also attend an information session about the program on Monday, February 13. More information here.
