Preservation Mentorship Program

Preservation is an elevated priority of the Friends of Charleston National Parks. The Friends of Charleston National Parks’ inaugural Preservation Mentorship Program will involve local high schools, colleges, universities, preservation groups and volunteers to help train, mentor, and develop future park stewards. This unique program will be an opportunity for young students and emerging generations to explore preservation careers and take action to safeguard our local national treasures. The Friends will directly assist by helping to build partnerships with schools and preservation groups as well as promote the program locally and regionally.
