The Oakwood Cemetery Chapel has part-time employees that help create our research and assist visitors in learning about Texas history and the surrounding Cemetery. Some of these staff members are college students completing work internship programs in subjects including Museum Studies, Urban Studies, GIS, History, and other fields. The City of Austin Youth Initiatives Office also places high school interns at our site.
In Summer 2022, the Chapel will be a home base for the Parks and Recreation Department's Austin Civilian Conservation Corps youth job training program. Corp Members will work at all of the Museums and Cultural Centers sites to receive job training in the museums field while learning about the equity and environmental initiatives of the Parks and Recreation Department. The paid Summer 2022 program will occur between June 6 - July 29 for 20 hours a week. To start your application, apply here.
