A Reciprocal Opportunity: Interning and Contributing on the Guerrero Project

Author(s): Andrianna Dowell; Arlice Marionneaux

Year: 2018

Summary

The history and the search for 19th century pirate-slaver Guerrero, wrecked in the Straits of Florida, brought together a consortium of research organizations and awarded two interns a valuable learning experience. Through the Latino Heritage Internship Program and the American Conservation Experience, interns Andrianna Dowell and Arlice Marionneaux (respectively) partnered with underwater archaeologists from National Park Service to assist in the Guerrero survey. The opportunity fostered professional and personal growth for the interns. In return, the interns furthered the project’s research objectives. This paper provides a first-hand account of the advantages collaborative internship programs grant their interns, and details the interns’ contributions to the Guerrero project.
