PROGRAM overview

Through our current program, "Proud of Where you Come From," we are partnering up with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Long Beach and local high schools to bring teens to historic sites in our service area. At these historic places, participating teens learn the history of the site, and then work with docents and museum management to brainstorm creative ways of sharing the site's story with future visitors. Through this program, teens increase awareness of local history and build self esteem in knowing their perspective is valuable, while historic sites are given tools to understand and reach a younger audience!
