YHOP (Young Heroes Outreach Program)

The National Liberty Museum’s Young Heroes Outreach Program (YHOP) is a yearlong initiative for students in grades 4-8.  This program empowers students in the areas of leadership, civic engagement, and social justice through critical thinking, inquiry, and project-based learning.  Acting on the principle that liberty is a right to which every person is entitled, YHOP prepares youth to identify gaps in liberty and supports them in making social change in their school or community.

After the students complete our original nine-lesson classroom-based curriculum, they plan and execute a Community Action Project, which fosters long-lasting change in their school or community.

The inspiration for the Young Heroes Outreach Program is the Museum’s Young Heroes Award.  For years, this award program has recognized and rewarded students who make a difference in their schools and communities.  The goal of YHOP is to inspire even more students to become young heroes.
