The community engagement-focused intern will help Fort Pulaski National Monument better manage and expand its partnerships and youth programs by allowing dedicated staff to focus on policy compliance and program expansion. Fort Pulaski National Monument has made significant headway in community engagement in the past year. The park partnered with many local groups for an organized community celebration in March 2024, diversified holiday programming through new partnerships with local performers, and secured a National Park Foundation Junior Ranger Angler grant through a partnership with a local arts non-profit and a local nature center. Additionally, our park’s Community Volunteer Ambassador assisted with critical volunteer management roles and conducted educational outreach via area schools and non-profits. FOPU wants to capitalize on these successes by continuing to strengthen partnerships, particularly in the areas of environmental education and interpretation, cultural and historical education, and arts-related education and engagement.
