Here’s an edu­ca­tion­al and recre­ation­al oppor­tu­ni­ty for high school aged youth and teachers…

It’s the Youth Her­itage Project (YHP) — an annu­al mul­ti-day her­itage field school that engages par­tic­i­pants by con­nect­ing them to his­toric, cul­tur­al, and nat­ur­al resources in Washington.

YHP engages stu­dents hands-on as they expand their knowl­edge about his­toric preser­va­tion and devel­op an under­stand­ing of how cul­tur­al resources affect a community.

This year it’s hap­pen­ing at Olympic Nation­al Park.  Click here for more info.

Par­tic­i­pants are asked to devel­op their own ideas about why preser­va­tion mat­ters and how remem­ber­ing the past can be a cru­cial part of a sus­tain­able future.

In addi­tion to expos­ing stu­dents to the ben­e­fits of his­toric preser­va­tion, YHP strives to teach youth that they can be a part of shap­ing their own com­mu­ni­ties through par­tic­i­pa­tion and activism.

Through YHP the Wash­ing­ton Trust seeks to inspire and excite our youth — the next gen­er­a­tion of com­mu­ni­ty lead­ers — to get involved and advo­cate for sav­ing the places that mat­ter to them.
