Description: Through this Task Agreement, the partners will create, fill, administer, and support an internship in support of projects and locations in the NPS National Capital Region, (NCR Partnerships and Community Engagement) program and other NPS programs that are providing assistance to a range of partners for education, field studies, and community events. This internship will provide high-quality exposure for CL interns to the kinds of professional work performed by NPS to benefit local communities, and will include coordinating with urban national park sites and education partners to provide interpretive, educational and recreational opportunities and connect communities to the public lands and national parks in their neighborhoods. Depending on circumstances, specific positions may be recruited locally or nationwide. This task will support part time (not to exceed 30 hours per week) positions to assist with the CityKids Urban Wilderness project, including planning meaningful park experiences in DC and in parks such as Grand Tetons or Yellowstone, including camping, hiking, boating, leadership and team-building skills connecting opportunities in local DC national parks with well known ⿿crown jewel⿝ national parks in the West. City Kids Urban Exploration park visits can include parks near the youth⿿s home communities such as Anacostia Park, Frederick Douglass National Historic Site, Rock Creek Park, and day trips to C & O Canal National Historical Park, Shenandoah National Park, and others. Visits and park focused programming will take place as a part of the afterschool program, weekend day trips, overnight trips on school holidays, spring, and summer breaks. City Kids works with youth in the out-of-school time hours and on average runs programming 3 ⿿ 5 days per week during the school year in DC, and daily mid-June through mid-August in Jackson, WY. Travel funds in the task agreement budget will provide travel for youth leaders to Jackson, Wyoming. Travel funds will cover airfare and transportation to/from the airport to Jackson, Wyoming for two youth leaders, (lodging and meals provided by City Kids). Travel budget also covers transportation from Rock Creek Park to Shenandoah and other national park sites within a 150 mile radius. The task also supports an intern in the NCR office of Interpretation and Education to assist with connecting local communities with the history of the search for freedom of enslaved people, providing assistance with graphic design and communication. This intern receives a higher stipend than the CityKids Urban Wilderness youth leaders. This task will also include an intern working as a Visual Information Specialist to support NCR parks with media and materials to involve youth in civil rights, urban exploration and other topics related to this project, particularly with connecting the story of current urban exploration and the search for freedom in the Underground Railroad.
