Hands-on Trades Opportunity Alert: TTAP Applications Open

Are you a young adult looking to join the historic trades? Looking to start a career with the National Park Service? Applications are open now for HPTC’s Aspiring Preservationist Programs.

The Traditional Trades Advancement Program (TTAP) is a 26-week program for young adults, ages 18-30 (up to 35 for veterans) interested in gaining hands-on preservation experience. Since 2018, TTAP has placed aspiring preservationists at national parks nationwide to preserve cultural resources and crucial infrastructure. Trainees receive project-based opportunities to learn carpentry, woodcrafting, finishing, masonry, metalworking, and window restoration while working, learning, and earning alongside professional NPS staff.

Requirements:
Applicants must be 18 – 30 years of age, or 18 – 35 years of age for US veterans.
No prior experience required.
$18/ hour
Participants work 40 hours per week for 26 weeks.
Positions are available across the country at different National Parks.
Positions open seasonally.

TTAP participants have:
repaired historic window sashes,
replaced perimeter capstones on a revolutionary era fort,
removed old mortar and pointed walls,
stabilized historic barn foundations,
waxed and treated bronze monuments,
restored historic viewsheds, and more!

Positions for the 2024 TTAP spring/summer season:
Tumacácori National Historical Park

This year is the first year for the TTAP Landscape Stewardship Corps. All the requirements & benefits are the same as listed above. These participants will gain a foundation for a career in historic landscape preservation by receiving on-the-job training in trades, such as: horticulture, arboriculture, forestry, trail management, landscape masonry and metalwork, cemetery management, and more!
