Learn & Improve

Cornerstones believes internships are a learning experience and should be mutually beneficial.  An internship can be a unique experience that may provide young people with their first paying job, expose them to new cultures, and develop a sense of responsibility and leadership.  Interns learn traditional building skills during hands-on workshops and many receive an hourly wage.

Through the auspices of US/ICOMOS (United States International Council of Monuments and Sites), Cornerstones frequently has interns from abroad who typically work with us for two months to one year. These may include young professionals with a background in architecture or preservation.  We have welcomed interns from India, Italy, Mexico, Spain, Panama, Ivory Coast, South Africa, Australia, Lithuania, Paraguay, Romania and currently, El Salvador
