Back to School for GVSHP's Children's Education Program

 

Each year GVSHP's Children's Education Program teaches over 1,100 young people in city schools how history can be found -- and preserved -- in the built environment around them. Using the Village as an example, school children are taught about immigration history, how our city developed from farmland, and how over time changes in technology and transportation also changed the way people lived and how our buildings were constructed. Each class participates in three sessions -- an introductory lesson in their classroom, then a field trip to various sites around the Village, and finally an in-class art project reinforcing the lessons they have learned.

 

GVSHP's Children's Education Program is the first of its kind in the city. We serve all schools regardless of need, and the nominal fee for the classes are waived for about a quarter of the participants -- made possible, in part, by the support of our members and government grants.  Led by qualified educators, the program aligns with New York State and City learning standards for Social Studies, English, Language Arts, and the Arts.

 

If you are interested in having your school or class participate in the program or want to find out more, visit our webpage here.

These proposals range from minor alterations to large additions, demolition, and new construction on landmarked sites.
