Overview

AMC's Cardigan Lodge is looking for new Information Volunteers. These volunteers are passionate about helping people enjoy the outdoors and learn about the natural world. Information Volunteers greet guests in a friendly manner, orient them to the facility, offer advice about hiking trails and outdoor activity planning, host campfires, and may assist with setting & clearing tables. Interested volunteers may also have the opportunity to offer evening programs and/or nature walks. Essential qualifications: recent experience hiking trails on and near Mt. Cardigan; familiarity with Cardigan Lodge; knowledge about outdoor gear and backcountry safety; and an outgoing, friendly personality. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old and pass a criminal background check. Benefits: Receive free meals and lodging, and retail discounts, while volunteering. Schedule: Information Volunteers serve on weekends in summer and early fall, arriving late afternoon on Friday and departing mid-day on Sunday. Most people volunteer for two or three weekends a year. Commitment: Commit to volunteering at least 32 hours per year, for at least three years. Participate in training each spring for the first two years as a volunteer, and once every three years after that. 2021 Training: Training sessions will be held online in late spring, followed by a half-day on-site orientation in late June. Application Process: Request an application by emailing Kyra Salancy at amcvolservices@outdoors.org.
