Hey Cody! Are you still in Seward? 

My roommate and I are SCAs for the KFNP! I've been in Seward since April, she just got here two weeks ago.

Hi everyone! I'm a little late in finding this group, as my internship is actually coming to an end. I've been serving since February as an education intern/specialist at the SeaLife Center in Seward, AK.

Hi everybody! I'm going to be serving Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park in Skagway, Alaska. It's my first position with the SCA, and I have a couple questions for anyone who's served there before. 

Do I need to bring a tent to hike the Chilkoot Trail, or does the site have one that volunteers can borrow? Does the house's kitchen have basic cookware, or should I bring some? Is there any specific gear you recommend interns bring besides the uniform and obvious necessities?

Hello everyone! I'm the partnership coordinator for the Tongass National Forest and a proud SCA alumnus, having served in the Forest Service's Alaska Regional Office in the winter of 2010-11. My duties include providing support and oversight for volunteer and service programs across the Tongass, including SCAs If you're an SCA intern currently serving on the Tongass, don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns - or great stories!

I'm also happy to talk with any SCA intern about strategies for making the jump from intern to career employee. It's never easy and there are no guarantees, but there's a very good reason that you'll find SCA alums everywhere in land management agencies.
