The History Hunters program is a literacy-based program aimed at serving underserved children in our community, who would otherwise not be able to experience the amazing historical and cultural resources, literally in their own backyard. Over 40,000 students have been served by the History Hunters Youth Reporter Program, gaining the opportunity to visit these historic and cultural institutions right in their own neighborhoods. We have seen how bright these students are, and how well they respond to learning through tactile, sensory methods that are lacking in the classroom. Through these trips, students take away important reading, writing and critical thinking skills and have the chance to contemplate big and broad ideas that will profoundly influence their lives. Yet each year, we have a waiting list of teachers hoping to be able to participate in this amazing program. We have more students to serve.
