Youth Leadership Team Applications Are Now Open

Youth Leadership Team Applications Are Now Open

One question we frequently receive from supporters is: "What are you doing to connect with the next generation?"

Well, I am pleased to announce that in the coming year, we are setting out to reach the youth in America in a big way. We are launching our first-ever Youth Leadership Team!

Our Youth Leadership Team will be a group of high school students from across the country who are passionate about American history. This year-long program will be an opportunity for students to learn the ins and outs of our mission and serve as ambassadors for the Trust. They will participate in a Lobby Day on Capitol Hill, attend the Annual Conference next summer and energize their local communities about the importance of our mission. During the year, each team member will be responsible for a preservation or education project in their hometown area.

By supporting this group of motivated young leaders, we hope to create a ripple effect for history education in our nation. Our aim is for young people to connect over their interest in preservation and empower each other to create change within their own schools and communities.

If you are interested in applying (or know someone who is), please help spread the word about the Youth Leadership Team. Applications are open now and the deadline to apply is April 30, 2019. Applicants must be aged 13-18 to participate. Please read our FAQs for more information.

Thank you for your support of the cause and your willingness to inspire the next generation with us.

In addition to the Youth Leadership Team, we aim to spark interest in history for younger children (aged 5-13) through our Generations program, events for young children, educational curriculum, and more.
