Workforce Manager


About the organization

HistoriCorps®, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, works to foster a preservation ethic in all through training volunteers, students, and youth in historic preservation skills, and then puts those skills to work to save historic places for generations to come. HistoriCorps partners with federal, state and local land management agencies to provide educational and outdoor opportunities and preserve historic resources. From our Morrison, CO headquarters, we coordinate and instruct projects on public lands throughout the United States.


The Workforce Manager serves a critical role in helping achieve our mission, annually recruiting 650+ volunteers to participate on historic preservation projects across the country. Volunteers join HistoriCorps’ expert staff on projects for a week at a time, learning hands-on preservation skills and saving historic places in doing so. The Workforce Manager’s overarching objective is to recruit, register, manage, and cultivate on-going relationships with project participants (volunteers, students and youth) and community partners, and to support efforts to expand HistoriCorps’ reach through effective marketing, communications and public relations. Functionally, the Workforce Manager ensures our recruitment and volunteer management needs are met in the field. They will engage with existing partners and the general public on a regular basis to promote HistoriCorps’ mission and volunteer opportunities. In all aspects of their role, the Workforce Manager upholds and advances HistoriCorps’ commitment to its core values.
