Summer Intern - Communications, Education, and Outreach - Advisory Council on Historic Preservation
A small, independent federal agency, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation advises the President and Congress on national preservation policy and related legislation, and oversees the historic preservation review process for federal projects. The ACHP develops and manages a variety of preservation programs dealing with promoting public appreciation of cultural heritage, economic development and community revitalization, Native American interests, sustainability, building a more inclusive preservation program, and youth engagement. The agency's mission is the preservation, enhancement, and sustainable use of our nation's diverse historic resources.

Interns become familiar with the full range of work of the agency and the roles of preservation partners through orientation, training, and by participating in meetings to observe the development and implementation of federal historic preservation policy. They also participate in programs with others interning at related agencies and organizations. Advisory Council members, staff, and the ACHP Foundation assist interns with networking and advice.

The Office of Communications, Education, and Outreach is seeking an intern to:
  • research and develop materials highlighting the importance and benefits of historic preservation for all Americans, including engagement with a wide range of communities, organizations, and educational institutions representing diverse audiences;
  • develop outreach strategies tailored for a variety of audiences, including Congress, young audiences, preservation partners, and the general public; and
  • suggest ideas, do research, and draft content for the ACHP Web site and social media. The intern will help expand the agency's social media presence by getting involved with Instagram takeovers, writing posts for Facebook, taking pictures for social media platforms, and more.
Interns may also assist with other emerging priorities through work with the Offices of Federal Agency Programs, General Counsel, Native American Affairs, and Preservation Initiatives.

Specific assignments are developed based on current agency needs and the skills and interests of selected interns. Professional staff members supervise all interns and projects can be tailored so that academic credit can be awarded.

The ACHP Foundation provides a stipend (equivalent to $12/hour). The internship is for 10-12 weeks, full-time, and will be managed remotely.

Relevant skills include strong research, writing, and organizational ability; the ability to work independently and collaboratively; comfort with contacting and interviewing people by phone; and experience with developing and managing content for the Web and social media. Some familiarity with historic preservation is desirable, but not required.

Instructions for applying can be found at www.achp.gov/internships/summer-internships-2021. Send to Judy Rodenstein, Internship Program Coordinator, at jrodenstein@achp.govDeadline is February 19th, 2021. For more information on the ACHP and its work, please visit www.achp.gov.
