The National Park Service (NPS) and Historic Trades Training Center invite youth aged 18-30 to apply for the Traditional Trades Advancement Program (TTAP).
Over the course of a 20-week immersive experience, TTAP participants preserve cultural resources and crucial infrastructure of national park sites, and in so doing, preserve craft skills necessary for ensuring these sites continue to inspire and educate the next generation.
Participants begin their experience with training in historic preservation and construction basics and continue by working in the field in a national park under the leadership of a NPS skilled preservationist.
In addition, participants will gain practical, hands-on experience which will provide the foundation for a career in historic preservation.
