Communications and Outreach Intern, The SS United States Conservancy (Washington, DC)
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: Allee Davis
Website: http://www.ssusc.org

Who we are: The SS United States Conservancy, a national nonprofit organization founded in 2004, is dedicated to protecting, revitalizing, and promoting the historic ocean liner SS United States, the largest passenger ship ever built in America and current holder of the transatlantic speed record.  "America's Flagship" transported four US presidents, business moguls, movie stars, tourists, and immigrants and is one of the last great super liners from the golden age of trans-Atlantic travel.

The SS United States Conservancy purchased the SS United States in February of 2011, and is currently working to secure her future as a mixed-use, stationary development which will include a SS United States museum.  The Conservancy is moving full speed ahead on its goals of building its permanent collection of archives, art, and artifacts from the SS United States.  Our dedicated staff is always diligently exploring how to best preserve, celebrate, and disseminate the range of items in the Conservancy’s collections through not only various social media platforms but also through unique opportunities with museums, institutions, and other organizations.

Guided by a prominent board of directors and advisory council, the Conservancy
currently has a small team based in Washington, DC, Philadelphia, and New York.  The organization has members hailing from all 50 states and 22 nations worldwide.

For more information, visit www.ssusc.org.

What we are looking for: The SS United States Conservancy is currently recruiting for a Communications and Outreach intern.

The Communications and Outreach Intern will support the Conservancy’s fundraising and viral marketing strategies. The intern will assist in identifying corporate and institutional supporters and sponsors and help generate creative strategies to build our individual and institutional membership base and expand our presence online. The intern will also assist in writing and editing articles for the Conservancy’s member newsletter and other publications, including feature pieces on the history of the SS United States, Conservancy events and programs, and other topics. The intern will also assist with member correspondence and support, and in handling the Conservancy’s social media accounts by drafting content, scheduling posts, and engaging with supporters on our digital platforms.

Philadelphia, or New York. An ideal candidate will be able to perform some job duties in a home office setting.

Commitment:  10-20 hours per week. (This internship can be combined with other part-time work or internship opportunities.) 

Remuneration: This is a paid internship.

Start Date and Duration:  Negotiable.

This position offers excellent opportunities for professional and personal development with practical, hands-on experience and mentoring. The position can be sculpted to some degree based on the interests and abilities of the candidate. To apply, please send a cover letter and resume to positions@ssusc.org.
