Forging Connections through 
Audience-Centered Experiences

Looking for the foundations of 21st Century Interpretation? Our "Audience Centered Experiences" course helps front-line interpreter's navigate their role as facilitators & audience collaboration. 

By asking thoughtful questions around issues critical to American culture, interpreters can be catalysts to engage citizenry in new and exciting ways. This course primes interpreters to incorporate audience-centered techniques into new and existing park programming and products.
Scholarships Now Available!
Limited travel scholarships are available for National Park Service staff. These scholarships will be awarded on a needs basis - the maximum amount awarded will be $500. The intent is to help parks augment their own monetary investment in employee development.
