🤲 Today is Giving Tuesday! On this day, we hope you'll consider supporting our International Exchange Program!

“During my internship, I conducted a series of interviews with professionals within India, who not only taught me about the conservation profession and where it's heading, but how I, as a young professional, can position myself to succeed and make an impact within it. Simply living everyday life in Hyderabad certainly helped me dive into the culture, and the people I met were so gracious in sharing their city with me.” -Schola, IEP 2023 intern with Vasaamah Architects

“During my internship, I gained a deeper understanding of the functioning of a NPS site, its various teams, and roles they play in preserving the place. Working in the Missions also allowed me to learn more about the local Tejana community and their history, and research on their relationship with their cultural identity.” -Vanille (pictured left), IEP 2023 intern with San Antonio Missions National Historical Park

This unique site needs good documentation….we took our four young children many years ago and it was a “yawner” for them because of the poor field site care and lack of supporting data ….real history does not sell easily in a Disney-centered world….I trust the new UNESCO designation will spruce up the tour information….

“My internship helped me learn a new program, Arc GIS Pro, and understand how to use it in relation to heritage and the impact of climate change. I also really appreciated the opportunity to see how institutions in the heritage field, such as the NCPTT and Puerto Rico SHPO, work together.” - Anton, IEP 2023 intern with the NCPTT and Puerto Rico SHPO

"The most enjoyable part of IEP was transboundary friendship that led to my understanding of transboundary perspectives. It helped me become more sensitive towards plural realities and exchange regional narratives. Being physically present in DC and engaging with young professionals across various sectors has indeed been an enriching experience for me." - Shinjini (pictured right), IEP 2022 intern with ICOMOS Sustainable Development Goals Working Group
