Stewards Individual Placements - Conservation Legacy

Stewards Individual Placement Program (SIPP) provides individuals with service and career opportunities to strengthen communities and preserve our natural and cultural resources. Participants work with federal agencies, tribal governments, and nonprofits building institutional capacity, developing community relationships, and supporting ecosystem health. SIPP in partnership with the National Park Service are seeking an intern who will successfully serve as an integral crew member on a historic preservation team.

The Historic Preservation Training Center (HPTC) is dedicated to the safe preservation and maintenance of national parks or partner facilities by demonstrating outstanding leadership, delivering quality preservation services, and developing educational courses that fulfill the competency requirements of service employees in the career fields of Historic Preservation Skills, Risk Management, Maintenance, and Planning, Design, and Construction.

The HPTC utilizes historic preservation projects as the main vehicle for teaching preservation philosophy and building crafts, technology, and project management skills. Our experiential learning approach emphasizes flexibility in addressing the known and unknown conditions encountered during the project and ensures that the goals of preservation are met.

The individual selected for this role will serve as a member of an NPS historic preservation team and work alongside NPS staff across regional parks preserving historic buildings or other cultural resource structures/sites. The Intern will be part of a traveling crew stationed out Flagstaff, AZ. Project travel will be performed at various parks, monuments, & national forests throughout the Intermountain West including AZ, NM, CO, TX, UT, WY, & MT. Preservation work on historic buildings will include log building repair, carpentry, roofing repair/replacement, window restoration, and masonry repairs.

 

Position Responsibilities will include:

  • Maintenance, repair, and preservation of historic buildings.
  • Jobsite safety.
  • Use of personal protective equipment.
  • Physical fitness to perform job duties.
  • Travel and responsibilities associated with working for prolonged periods in travel status.

Benefits:

  • Living Allowance of $18/hr with the potential for overtime based on project needs
  • Public Land Corps Hiring Authority Eligibility – must meet 640 hours of service.
  • Opportunity to travel to different National Park Service sites.
  • Opportunity to learn trade secrets from master craftsmen.

Benefits

All NCPE interns received an hourly stipend, the rate is listed at each position description. Additionally, interns receive paid time off (PTO), paid Federal holidays if working full-time, and access to NCPE's Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for career and personal counseling, coaching, and referrals. Project sites may also offer a housing allowance and/or commuting stipend; this information is also listed in the description or offered during the interview.

Eligible NCPE interns who successfully complete their internships may count their position towards earning a Public Land Corps (PLC) Non-Competitive Hiring Authority certificate. To be eligible to earn a PLC certificate, an intern must be 30 years old or younger (or 35 if a veteran). Once earned, the PLC hiring authority certificate may be used to apply for eligible Federal temporary, term, or permanent positions. Successful completion of a NCPE internship does not guarantee Federal employment. Contact manager@preservenet.org for more details.

Eligibility

To be eligible, applicants must be at least 18 years old, currently enrolled in a degree-seeking academic program at the college level (or recently graduated within the past 12 months), and be a U.S. Citizen or permanent resident. Interns are not eligible to work more than 1200 hours total in the program; previous interns must stay within this overall limit. The length of an internship can vary from 10 to 30 weeks if full time (40 hours per week) or longer if on a part-time schedule. If selected, the exact starting date will be determined by you and the NPS supervisor. The stipend rate is $17.00 per hour unless otherwise listed.

The successful candidate is responsible for finding and paying for travel to and housing at the internship location; some exceptions apply. The supervising office may be able to assist in locating housing but it is ultimately up to the individual accepting the internship to find accommodation.

The National Council requires all interns working in-person at Federal facilities and/or with Federal employees receive the Covid-19 vaccination. Please be advised that you may also be required to wear a mask, depending on the protocols adopted by your work site. Also be aware that, due to Government-wide security requirements, a background check will be required if you are selected for a position. This will include providing information about recent housing and employment history. The position supervisor will have more information about these requirements and procedures at the time of hiring. You may direct any questions to NCPE's Internship Program Director, Julee Johnson, at manager@preservenet.org.

Please note that interns are not NCPE or NPS employees. Stipends are academic awards and taxes are not withheld, nor are social security contributions made on your behalf. These funds may be taxable, however, so consult a tax preparation professional if you have questions.
