Maine Preservation Internship Opportunity

Maine Preservation, the statewide nonprofit historic preservation organization, is offering two summer positions in conjunction with the preservation trades for historic preservation students. Internships span approximately nine weeks in the summer, split between hands-on field work with a reputable preservation construction firm and Maine Preservation’s office headquarters. Five weeks of field service will be compensated full time at $10 per hour. Four weeks of service at Maine Preservation’s headquarters is unpaid. Duties at the trades sites will be according to skill level. Responsibilities at MP’s headquarters will include assistance with research and professional writing (press releases, etc), event and advocacy organization, and general assistance in the office. Benefits of an internship include introduction to the preservation field, both of the tangible applications of construction and repair, and of the policy and advocacy side of preservation, including the financial models available for developers and the latest best practices on “green” rehab. Interns will be introduced to the preservation professionals community, policy makers, preservation consultants, supporters and donors, and allied organizations in the field. Interns will gain important practical knowledge of how preservation businesses run and how preservation nonprofits function. An academic or professional background in preservation is encouraged. While several Maine Preservation interns have gained post-grad employment through MP contacts, Maine Preservation does not have paid positions available following the internship at this time. Housing will be the responsibility of the intern.
