Young Heroes Outreach Program (YHOP) Structure

The Young Heroes Outreach Program (YHOP) takes place in two phases: the Training Phase and the Action Phase.Throughout both phases, participating faculty advisors have continued educational support from Museum Outreach Educators.

The Training Phase:

  1. A Professional Development Workshop to learn more about the curriculum and the goals of the program
  2. An Introductory 90-Minute Museum Tour for participating teachers and students
  3. A 10-lesson unit, which is aligned with the Common Core Standards and includes and Educator Resource Guide, Student Training Guides, photocopies of all activities, and on-going educational support from a museum educator.  An educator from our staff will co-teach 4 of the 10 lessons and will provide on-going curriculum and implementation support

The Action Phase:

  1. The participating students form a Young Heroes Club
  2. Students apply the steps for making change, which they learned in the Training Phase to plan their own Community Action Project.  During this phase, an educator from the museum will co-lead 3 Club sessions and will be available for on-going curriculum and implementation support.
  3. An End-of-Year Celebration held at the National Liberty Museum in which the students have the opportunity to showcase their Community Action Projects
