living room Have you ever dreamt about spending your summer on an island?

Every year FOSILS  offers a volunteer opportunity for two compatible people to live on Seguin Island as full-time caretakers from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Becoming a Seguin Island Light Station Caretaker requires experience and preparation. The position is both physically and mentally demanding, yet forever rewarding and possibly life changing.

We are looking for self-starters, who will be responsible for the smooth running of the island for the summer. Multi-taskers are welcome, as duties range from giving historical tours and running the museum/gift shop, to keeping the lawns and trails maintained and opened, to hosting guests in the guest quarters for donating members.

Still intrigued?

Each year applications are accepted for the following year. Follow the links below to learn more and apply.  Applications can be sent to
