To participate as an intern, you should be enrolled in a college or graduate program studying archaeology, anthropology, museum studies, historic preservation, history or a related field. We also accept recent graduates as interns and those starting out in our profession.
In 2014, we are offering a for-credit Field School in Historic Preservation through the University of Maryland. The class is open to both undergraduate and graduate students.

Mount Vernon Archaeology is accepting volunteers to help with a variety of activities at the archaeological site and the laboratory. Volunteers must be over 16 years old and have an interest in archaeology. A strong attention to detail, a sense of humor and willingness to speak with visitors about the archaeological excavation are also needed for successfully volunteering with Mount Vernon's archaeologists.
