HistoriCorps Institute is the education and training arm of HistoriCorps, which works with students, volunteers, and veterans to save places that matter. HistoriCorps Institute provides a program in Heritage Conservation and Construction, and through our preservation projects students have an opportunity to earn a Certificate of Achievement in Heritage Conservation and Construction. This allows students to learn the decision making and hands-on skills necessary to successfully complete a preservation construction project on time, on budget, and with the quality deserving of historic places.
We are currently taking student applications. In order to earn their Certificate, students must complete 5 project sessions (sessions are generally a week long) along with additional course work listed in their syllabi. Students may find information about upcoming projects at www.historicorps.org/preservation-projects, and they may register as a HistoriCorps Institute student, and find more information about the Certificate of Achievement in Heritage Conservation and Construction at www.historicorps.org/institute.
The HistoriCorps website lists all of our upcoming projects, and we will continue to update the site and our 2017 catalog as we finalize additional projects throughout the year.
