Website National Park Service/NCPE Internship Program

The National Register of Historic Places is the official list of the Nation's historic places worthy of preservation. Authorized by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places is part of a national program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect America's historic and archeological resources.

National Register of Historic Places Social Media Coordinator:
The National Register of Historic Places (NRHP), a program of the National Park Service (NPS) in Washington, DC, provides nationwide guidance on the recognition of historic properties that are significant to a community, a state, or the nation.  The National Register intern will assist with building upon and improving the National Register program’s social media presence, primarily by planning/scheduling and developing relevant Facebook, Instagram, and Flickr posts, with a focus on commemorative historical events and featured listings.

The position will also include creating and writing pages for the NPS website about National Register properties. One particular focus for 2024 will be highlighting and describing the various Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camps and related National Register listings and other projects.  This internship is a remote duty station/telework position for which the selectee is not expected to report in person to Washington, DC.

The intern will work under the supervision of one of the National Register Archivists and a Senior Historian.  In the course of their work, the intern may also interact with the National Register staff and other NPS programs and regional offices and/or State Historic Preservation Offices (SHPOs).  This is a good opportunity for students with an interest in promoting historic preservation across multiple digital platforms and in expanding their knowledge of federal historic preservation programs.
