The NPS, in partnership with preservation professionals and DC Public Schools, will host a youth summit October 7 – 10, 2016.
The DC Youth Summit wants to bring you into a conversation about citizenship, civil rights, and historic preservation. Tour places that matter in the history of the fight for equal rights and earn community service hours. Work with National Park Service staff and historic preservation professionals to improve the ways that these stories are told to the public and in classrooms.
In a three and a half day program, student participants will visit local sites related to the struggle for abolition, women’s suffrage, and continuing issues of protest. At the end of the summit, they will share their experiences and present recommendations for how these places can be made more relevant and engaging to students.
