National Park Service Student Employees

National Park Service Student Employees We are a network of NPS student employees that fosters communications and professional development for current and future employees of the NPS.

The Student Engagement Network (SEN) is a student-focused Employee Resource Group that aims to foster idea sharing and professional development for current and future students employed by the National Park Service. Comprised of student employees, hiring officials, and other advocates from all seven NPS regions, the SEN acts as a liaison between hiring officials, human resources, and students, to facilitate discussion about challenges specific to student employees and to seek innovative solutions where possible. We hope to make the NPS a healthier and more fulfilling place for students to find their careers. The SEN aims to continuously inspire emerging generations of diverse leaders by meeting the needs of student employees and embracing their valuable role in furthering the mission of the NPS. To that end, we serve as a point of contact for student employees and their supervisors, and to provide timely and accurate information based on the most current agency policies or procedures.
