Greeters

Serve as a knowledgeable resource—and a friendly, welcoming face—for millions of annual visitors.

Help the Conservancy meet the informational needs of Central Park's millions of annual visitors from all over the world. Whether they are from far-away places or are New Yorkers who use the Park regularly, many visitors need help navigating the Park or have general interest questions.

To become a Greeter, you must:

  • Complete the initial screening and training processes, including a background check
  • Be physically able to walk through various types of terrain
  • Have an excellent sense of direction and a strong knowledge of Park features
  • Have a positive, service-oriented demeanor
  • Be willing to commit annually to 1 three-hour shift per week
  • Have internet access to record work hours and communicate through email
  • Attend refresher trainings as needed

Greeter positions include:

Kiosk Greeter
Kiosk Greeters are stationed in one of three kiosks throughout the Park. They greet visitors, give directions, answer Park-related questions, provide information about upcoming events, and teach good Park stewardship.

Area Greeter
As an Area Greeter, you will be stationed in a zone of the Park. Area Greeters perform the same duties as a Kiosk Greeter except they are mobile.

Anyone interested in becoming a Greeter must attend a Volunteer Information Session and complete an initial screening & training. Please note, we recruit for these roles as needed. There is limited availability for new volunteers. The next Greeter recruitment period opens in July 2022.
