Website National Park Service's Historic Preservation Training Center
Located In Frederick, MD and HPTC regional centers with project-based travel.
Stewards Individual Placements (SIP) provides individuals with service and career opportunities to strengthen communities and preserve our natural resources. Participants work with federal agencies, tribal governments, and nonprofits building institutional capacity, developing community relationships, and supporting ecosystem health.
Historic structures and features in our national parks are constantly in need of thoughtful and careful preservation, repair, and maintenance. By assisting and working alongside HPTC on these preservation projects the Intern will directly improve the physical conditions of a nationally significant park space that is accessed and enjoyed by thousands of visitors a year.
The participant will benefit by gaining training in preservation craft skills, learning basic safety standards in a variety of work environments, and being introduced to general preservation principals and the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards. The outcome of each AmeriCorps Member’s efforts will be the improvement of a variety of historic structures and making them more enjoyable and accessible to the public.
Each project undertaking by HPTC directly benefits the Historic Built Environment of Cultural Sites of which many are on listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Each project will provide an opportunity to directly impact the availability of these resources for future generations and directly fulfills the mission of the National Park Service.
