Position Description:

This internship will focus on direct outreach to existing Hispanic visitors to better understand how and why Hispanic visitors come to the Smith’s Bridge Picnic Area in the summer months. Once this is better understood, outreach to the non-visiting Hispanic community can begin. The Smith’s Bridge Picnic area sees Hispanic visitation of more than 1,000 on weekend days and up to 5,000 on holiday weekends in the summer. The internship will help the park overcome a major deficit, which is not having a Spanish speaker on staff. It is nearly impossible to do substantive outreach when you cannot communicate in the native language of your visitors or potential visitors. The intern will work alongside other staff at the picnic area on the weekend and then work with the Superintendent to develop and implement outreach strategies outside the boundaries of the park. The primary deliverable will be an Outreach Plan to be implemented at the park. The plan will serve as a written road map for future engagement to the Hispanic community for the park.  

Intern Qualifications:

Interns selected for the NPSCF Program should possess:

  • Demonstrated leadership skills and experience
  • Strategic thinking ability
  • The ability to self-start/work independently
  • Flexibility/resourcefulness
  • The ability to adapt new skills and ideas to the public sector

The intern will need to be a fluent Spanish speaker and willing to routinely engage with the public. The intern will also need to be comfortable working outside in the summer.

Physical/Natural Environment: The park office at 400 Ramsey is a converted single-family home. The inter will have their own dedicated workstation. The weather in Wilmington in the summer is worm and can be humid. The office is located just off a major road with all the stores one could possibly want within a 10 min drive.

Work Environment: Half of the work will take place outside and half in the office.
