Historic Preservation Corps
The SCA, AmeriCorps, and Massachusetts Service Alliance has partnered with the National Park Service to offer a unique opportunity for young adults looking to gain leadership and hands-on experience in the field of Historic Preservation. The goals of the program are three-fold: to build the next generation of preservation leaders; to preserve historic places across Massachusetts while developing apprentice level preservation skills in carpentry, masonry, landscape management; and to serve where there is a need in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Green Ambassadors—a program of the National Park Service, Thompson Island Outward Bound Education Center, and the MA Department of Conservation and Recreation—provides a youth employment and development experience for Boston young people between the ages of 15 - 18. Using the Boston Harbor Islands as a learning lab, this seven week program exposes young people to natural resource and park management careers, while also cultivating a sense of confidence and community.
