Internship with the Appalachian Conservation Corps

Posted: January 17, 2024

Appalachian Conservation Corps is recruiting for three paid interns to learn about park management and implement skills at a historic indigenous site in Jamestown, VA.

We are hiring three Cultural Steward Interns to serve six-month terms in Jamestown, VA starting in May 2024. The Cultural Steward Individual Placements will work with Tribal Communities and National Park Service staff to get experience in the full scope of park operations and support the rediscovery and protection of Werowocomoco, a historic indigenous site along what is now known as the York River.

Interns will work closely with Virginia tribal communities and leadership, and train with NPS staff in departments such as interpretation/education, law enforcement, facility management, etc.

This is a great opportunity for someone with experience in public speaking, customer service, indigenous history, anthropology, US history, archaeology, education/interpretation, museum settings or environmental studies. We are seeking indigenous candidates, but anyone is welcome to apply.
