Two main projects that I established while working within the park service are currently used as national models. The Design Volunteers In Park Program, which is an innovative program working with students from Ex'pression College and Academy of Art University, to develop marketing campaigns and branding for nonprofit organizations. The other program is the Park Photography program, which works with amateur to professional level photographers who volunteer their expertise to the park service. During their time within the park, volunteers from both programs gain valuable experience in their craft. Listed below are newsworthy events which highlights those projects.
