SCRANTON, Pa. — The Steamtown National Historic Site is working with the National Park Foundation and other groups on a six-month part-time fellowship program at the rail preservation site. The park and its leaders are seeking a qualified post-Sept. 11 U.S. Armed Forces veteran to handle visitor orientation, interpretive programs, educational efforts, and archival work, among other tasks.

The selected veteran would work at Scranton site from Oct. 15, 2017 until April 14, 2018, and would work about 20 hours per week.

Steamtown officials say the job responsibilities include both indoor and outdoor work and an environment that would require climbing on and off rail equipment.

Those interested in applying for the position are asked to apply via The Mission Continues website by Thursday, July 27.

The Mission Continues is a non-profit group dedicated to getting veterans involved in community projects in an effort to promote a new generation to serve.
