The Art of Ranching: A 4-H Youth Oral History Project of Centennial Ranches in Routt County

This Extension internship builds upon the existing work of the Art of Ranching Project from Summer 2021. The overall goal of the internship is to A) provide the intern with opportunities to develop their youth engagement and programming skills and B) provide the intern with opportunities to build upon their public history and public communication skills. During the course of this internship, the intern will: 1) support and assist in the training of 4-H youth in oral history interviewing; 2) engage in site visits to ranches and conduct follow-up interviews; 3) conduct additional archival research and work with local historians and preservation groups as needed; 4) assist in finalizing the digital public-facing product; and 5) construct the Art of Ranching 4-H curriculum, which will serve as a template for AOR projects in other Colorado counties. Any travel within Routt County will be covered. Accommodations during overnight stays in Routt County will also be provided.
