Description: The objective of this Task Agreement is to provide interns to work in various parks within Manhattan Sites and the National Parks of New York Harbor. The three interpretation and social media interns will present formal and informal talks, guided tours, historic education programs or multi-media presentations at one or more of the historic sites and parks within New York. The two curatorial/historian interns will work with historic collections and catalogue the library collection at Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace as well as other historic sites in New York and write articles for publication by the NPS. The visual information intern will provide support to all of the parks within NPNH in developing print graphics and digital media platforms to help create video and graphics for NPNHâ¿¿s various social media outlets. In addition, all six of the interns will be provided park based training ranging from curatorial collections, interpretation, resource protection and safety based operational leadership training. This project also includes three additional enrichment days coordinated and facilitated by the SCA and the NPS to promote larger thinking across boundaries to address resource based challenges affecting parks today. All 17 SCA interns within New York/New Jersey will participate, working in small groups to identify an issue or challenge they observe during their NPS Academy week. They will work on this throughout the summer, clearly defining and contextualizing their selected issue/challenge and create a proposal to address the issue or capitalize on the opportunity they have identified. The three enrichment days will provide opportunities for the teams to work on their project and develop their skills in innovative approaches to community engagement and involvement culminating in a presentation to NPNH park leaders on the last enrichment day.
