This yearlong initiative empowers students in grades 4–8 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 Social 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.
Our newest exhibition, Strength & Fragility: The Story of the NLM, highlights the life of the Museum’s founder Irvin J. Borowsky, and how his belief in universal equality and liberty, as well as his passion for contemporary glass art, led to the creation of the National Liberty Museum. Strength & Fragility includes engaging archival material, stunning glass artwork, and immersive soundscapes. The centerpiece of the exhibition is a magnificent 9-foot-high glass canopy by Ulla Darni, entitled “The Peace Portal.” It features a custom sound bath experience, Seeds of Love, written and produced by Philadelphia-based sound artist Luna Maye, in collaboration with composer Alfiya Glow.
