Advanced Youth Interpreters
Advanced Youth Interpreters are students who have successfully completed two or more years of school at Fort Vancouver National Historic Site, and are notified of upcoming education opportunities as they arise. Students may be over the age of 18.
Training and events for Advanced students occurs randomly throughout the year as plans are made, and include a wide variety of topics related to the Hudson's Bay Company or regional history. Sessions may include off-site trips to places such as Fort Nisqually and Fort Clatsop, or docent training at the McLoughlin House in Oregon City. Exploration of fields of study within the National Park Service or fort site are featured, such as museum conservation, gardening, or historic costume. Students are encouraged to make suggestions, and help in the planning of continuing education.
