Preservation Maryland Launches The Campaign for Historic Trades
Preservation Maryland and the National Historic Preservation Training Center have partnered to create The Campaign for Historic Trades. Preservation Maryland was selected by the National Park Service to act as the official charitable partner of the National Historic Preservation Training Center, which is headquartered in Frederick, Maryland, due to the non-profit’s nearly nine-decade long commitment to preservation in Maryland and beyond.
The Campaign for Historic Trades will support the diverse needs of the National Historic Preservation Training Center, with a central focus on the Center’s work to train skilled preservation tradespeople through its Traditional Trades Apprenticeship Program (TTAP). In addition, the Campaign will work to increase awareness of the Center’s preservation projects around the nation and to expand the scale and impact of the educational outreach provided by the Center. The Campaign and its staff will work to encourage private philanthropic support of these efforts. The Center and the Campaign will also work in partnership to expand the geographic footprint of the apprenticeship program in 2020 and beyond.
