The National Park Service (NPS) created the Youth Heritage Summit program to spur a love for historic sites within high school students across the country. Since 2010, the NPS has funded the program in Colorado and Washington State. In 2015, We Are the Next began working with NPS leaders to bring the program to California. In July of 2016, We Are the Next will host California's first full-length Youth Heritage Summit (YHS) at Cesar E. Chavez National Monument. If you work in education or know high school students who would be interested in applying for this exciting opportunity, visit the all-new Youth Heritage Summit California Website!

We want to help students with a budding interest in history, arts, and culture develop that interest into a lifelong passion. With YHS, we will bring students to Cesar E. Chavez National Monument where they will spend time with leaders in our nation's history, local activists, and industry professionals to learn new artistic methods and get a glimpse into what it takes to run a national monument.
