NPS Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument Interpretive Individual Placement (IP) Overview:
Stewards Individual Placement Programs (SIPP) provides individuals with service and career opportunities to strengthen communities and preserve our natural resources. Participants work with federal agencies, tribal governments, and nonprofits building institutional capacity, developing community relationships, and supporting ecosystem health. SIPP in partnership with Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument is seeking interns who will develop written, audio and video content for the Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument website.
The Visual Information Specialist Intern is an internship position based at Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument in Maine. Katahdin Woods and Waters is an 87,000+ acre national monument designated in 2016 to protect a landscape where the East Branch Penobscot River and its tributaries run freely. These positions will work closely with a seasonal National Park Service Visual Information Specialist to enhance the website for Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument.
Throughout their terms, interns will focus on developing new content and photos for the website. After an orientation to the monument, interns will have the opportunity to explore it thoroughly to develop a stronger understanding of its natural and cultural resources. Once interns are familiar with the monument, they will write content for web pages using plain language to enhance the information available to visitors as they plan their visits. Those with skills and interest in photography and videography will have the opportunity to contribute visual media to the website and NPS app.
The intern will get to interact with park and partner staff, volunteers, and other interns to seek out and tell various stories through written and visual media.
*Must be 18 by end of service term to be eligible for education award
