Website National Park Service/NCPE Internship Program
The Tribal Historic Preservation Program is the National Park Service (NPS) office responsible for reviewing and approving applications submitted by federally recognized Tribes to enter into agreements with Tribal Historic Preservation Offices (THPO). When fully executed, these agreements establish the THPO as the lead for historic preservation responsibilities on tribal lands that would otherwise have been the responsibility of the State Historic Preservation Office.
Working with NPS staff, the intern will support the Tribal Historic Preservation Program by assisting with tracking partnership applications, reviewing partnership applications, as well as providing annual reporting review support to over 200 approved THPO partners. Duties will include processing and aggregating annual activities reports, document tracking/filing, and serving as a point of contact between the Tribal Historic Preservation Program and THPOs, as well as other NPS programs that support THPOs. Additional duties may include documenting and archiving Program library items and tracking, reviewing, and drafting responses to incoming Tribal Historic Preservation Officer inquiries and program plans for review by Program Staff. Depending on the applicant’s strengths and interests, duties could also include developing outreach materials for social media and web contexts and identifying new opportunities to reach out to prospective applicants. The position is located in Washington, DC, but this position may be 100% remote as the majority of Program staff continue to work remotely during pandemic operations.
