MINN Career Resources

International Jobs and Volunteer Opportunities

Job Posters: To quickly inform over one thousand Minnesotans with an international inclination of your organization's job or volunteer opportunity, simply write and provide a hyperlink to your position. This is a free service to all international organizations.

Job Seekers: If you are a job seeker, we invite you to enroll as a MINN member in order to receive the most timely information on international employment opportunities. MINN also encourages you to join the MINN LinkedIn group, via this link, to be informed of any new jobs posted by MINN LinkedIn members. After joining the MINN group, don't forget to sign up for the group daily digest to make sure you are informed, within 24 hours, of any new job opportunities.

Additional Sources
We encourage job seekers to check out the individual websites of international organizations of interest listed in MINN's organizational online directory.

Another great source for nonprofit jobs in Minnesota is the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits website.
For job seekers, it never hurts to flex your networking muscle. We encourage you to check the MINN calendar for events to attend, where you can connect with others working in the international field.
Take it to the next level and join one of MINN's volunteer committees. Many people working in the international sector in Minnesota know of MINN and recognize the value of MINN volunteer experience. Where else can you volunteer with an NGO professional on a MINN event who might vouch for your organizational and teamwork skills at an interview down the road?

International Volunteers for US National Parks

Experience America's Greatest Places - Become an International Volunteer

Every year over 100 participants from around the world train in US National Parks. All of them are provided with unique opportunities to get involved, learn new things, and have fun.

If you are a college or university student from another country, work for another country's park agency, or have a background in environmental or cultural related fields, and might be interested in volunteering for the U.S. National Park Service - we want to hear from you!

NPS welcomes all who apply to the International Volunteers in Parks Program (IVIP); however, we may only select those who meet visa and immigration requirements. Additionally, national parks capacity to train and house international volunteers, limits the number of IVIP programs. Thus, NPS selects candidates who have the educational and professional backgrounds to benefit from the training and who have the best the potential to share it with colleagues and scholars when they return to their home countries.

There are several requirements that must be met in order to participate in the program. Read and follow the steps needed to see if you can become an NPS International Volunteer. Or download a copy of our brochure (1,367 KB PDF) to read more about the program.

If you meet the qualifications, submit an IVIP application (50 KB DOC) to the NPS IVIP Coordinator. Once we receive your application, expect an answer within 15 working days. If you qualify, we'll help you locate a park to volunteer in or you can check for current volunteer opportunities. See our IVIP Q & A for additional information.

Foreign nationals currently residing in the United States are subject to different regulations. But we may still be able to use your help.
