About School and Youth Programs
Historic New England’s school and youth programs have earned national attention for the innovative ways in which they use historical resources to reinforce and enrich student learning.
Our programs are fun, multi-disciplinary, and suited to a variety of learning styles. Designed in collaboration with local educators, programs align with state curriculum standards and allow young people to learn through multiple approaches, including hands-on activities, role-playing, and cooperative learning. If you can’t come to us, we will bring valuable educational experiences to your classroom through our Programs-to-Go.
