About the Campaign

The Campaign for Historic Trades, a national workforce development program of Preservation Maryland, seeks to ensure quality employment and a quality workforce for the historic trades. To achieve this, we work to:

  1. Register apprenticeships with the Department of Labor.
  2. Create open education and training resources available in English and Spanish, hosted online following Section 508 accessibility guidelines and licensed under a Creative Commons license.
  3. Work with stakeholders to support preservation trades programs, associations, and businesses.
  4. Develop statewide and national historic trades training opportunities that are accessible to all.
  5. Promote and recruit for the National Park Service’s preservation and trades programs.
  6. Advocate for support of the historic trades training.
  7. Lead the national movement to strengthen and expand historic trades careers.
