Robert Jacobsen Employee Development Fund

Preparing Stewards - Past Projects

Named for a beloved retired superintendent of Shenandoah National Park, the Robert Jacobsen Employee Development Fund supports park employee participation in leadership and other career-enhancing trainings.

“This field of emergency medical services has taught me compassion like no other field. These tools I’ve learned over the beginning of 2020 will hopefully bring peace, the best care and compassion to our sick and injured visitors, volunteers and employees. I’ve learned how to be National Park Service ParkMedic for Shenandoah through the assistance by the Robert Jacobsen Employee Development grant funds provided by Shenandoah National Park Trust. …The course was completed by your support for this program will paid forward in service to others. It’s why I come to work every day.”
– Melissa Moses, 2020 grant recipient
