Advisory Council on Historic Preservation
Office of Communications, Education, and Outreach

A small, independent federal agency, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) oversees the historic preservation review process for federal projects and conducts a variety of preservation programs dealing with national preservation policy, legislation, sustainability, Native American interests, economic development, and promoting public appreciation of cultural heritage. In 2015, our selected interns will complete projects aimed at engaging a wider audience in the activities carried out or overseen by the ACHP and our historic preservation partners nationwide. Interns will also become familiar with the full range of work of the agency and will participate in meetings and programs with others interning at related agencies and organizations.

$ stipend towards expenses

Are you interested in the preservation, enhancement, and sustainable use of our nation's diverse historic resources? The ACHP is looking for candidates with an interest in historic preservation who may come from a wide variety of disciplines in addition to history or archaeology, such as architecture, planning, economics, law, journalism, and information technology. Specific assignments will be developed based on the skills and interests of selected interns. Projects can be tailored so academic credit can be awarded. ACHP professional staff supervises all interns. Potential projects for summer 2015 include:

·         Research and draft short stories illuminating the experiences of individuals and communities using the federal Section 106 process to preserve historic sites, particularly those that reflect the diverse cultural heritage of the United States. Products may be used as part of a series of Section 106 Success Stories, on our Web site, in training courses, and to promote broader public participation in historic preservation.

·         Develop social media content to better engage youth and audiences that are more diverse in our work and in historic preservation in general.

·         Support other emerging priorities of the office. 

Relevant skills include strong writing and research ability; comfort with contacting, meeting, and interviewing people by phone or in person; and experience with using and developing content for the Web and social media. Some familiarity with historic preservation is desirable, but not required.
