Entry Level

Name of Firm:

Enterprise

Job Location:

Philadelphia, PA

About:
The Fairmount Park Conservancy (FPC) exists to champion Philadelphia’s parks. Our mission is to work as a collaborative partner to lead and support efforts that preserve and improve the parks and recreation system in order to enhance the quality of life and stimulate economic development of the Greater Philadelphia Region. We fulfill our mission by leading capital projects and historic preservation efforts, fostering neighborhood park stewardship, attracting and leveraging resources for the parks, and developing innovative programs throughout the 10,200 acres that include Fairmount Park and more than 115 neighborhood parks around the city. The Fairmount Park system is one of the largest urban park systems in the world and includes some of the
region’s most famous attractions.
 
Fellowship Goals:
Philadelphia’s Parks & Recreation Department is on the cusp of a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform civic assets at the heart of the community. Utilizing the newly passed sugary beverage tax and leveraging private support, the park system looks to see $500 million worth of improvements to parks, recreation centers and libraries. As official partner to the department and based off our successful work in community parks over the past eight years, the Conservancy plans to capitalize on this opportunity and increase our role in community outreach related to Park & Recreation sites throughout the city of Philadelphia.
 
The Rose Fellowship will provide the Conservancy with an individual that is both dedicated to social impact and trained in the key skill set that will help our organization
make this leap from programmatic delivery to design leader for Philadelphia’s parks and recreation centers. As the Conservancy ramps up our capital investments in parks, we need a professional that is dedicated to shaping our design ethos, creating protocols to ensure design excellence and effectively integrating our core values of
sustainability and community responsiveness. The timing is ideal for this fellowship to have maximum impact.
