Multimedia Outreach Intern
The Latino Heritage Intern and the park's Visual Information Specialist will together create a video series of at least three short (1-2 minute) video recipe segments for use on park social media, website, and other platforms. Over the course of this project, the intern will explore the effect of Spanish colonization on local cultures by creating an original video recipe series of traditional and contemporary local foods; creatively connecting present-day San Antonio cuisine to the historical influence of San Antonio Missions National Historical Park.
The video series will be aimed at reaching local communities and fostering project-related community partnerships to find creative solutions to make park social media more accessible to diverse new audiences. For this project, the intern will receive training in formal onsite and offsite interpretation and gain experience in front-line interpretation by staffing the Visitor Center front desk.

About San Antonio Missions San Antonio, Texas:
San Antonio is a major metropolitan area with a population that is more than 60 percent Hispanic. Though the national park is located in a predominantly Hispanic part of town, Hispanics are underrepresented in park visitation and in outdoor recreation activities in general. The San Antonio Missions tell the stories of the people who came into the Spanish missions to live in the 1700s. Acculturating and converting the indigenous population in order to become Spanish citizens reverberates today in the southwest United States.
