Greeter/Guide Program Opportunities
Help the Conservancy meet the information needs of Central Park's 40 million annual visitors from all over the world. Whether they are from far-away places, or are New Yorkers who use the Park regularly, many need help navigating the Park, or have general interest questions. Enhance their experiences by greeting, guiding and informing them, whenever possible, about the importance of Central Park Conservancy's role in the Park and much more. You can choose the type of greeter/guide you’d prefer by selecting one of the options below. Training is provided and required for all positions and we ask for a two-year commitment to the Greeter/Guide program.
Greeter — work with a partner or on your own in pre-designated areas of the Park greeting visitors, giving directions, answering Park-related questions, providing information about upcoming events, and teaching good Park stewardship.
Kiosks are a natural draw for a visitor to head for. You are a live person and legitimately look like you could help. As a kiosk greeter you provide the Central Park visitor with information and services that will help enhance their experience and enjoyment while in the Park.
Visitor Center Greeter
As a Visitor Center volunteer you will work out of one of three Centers. Your main job will be to support the Centers staff, especially around lunch time or when, for whatever reason, they are short staffed.
Tour Guides lead public and/or custom walking tours throughout the Park, helping visitors discover Central Park's history, ecology, and design. You will learn and lead tours in all areas of the Park.
