Action Projects

Action Projects 2021-2022

The National Liberty Museum’s Young Heroes Outreach Program brings the Museum’s civic leadership curriculum directly into schools. Students spend the year developing key civic engagement skills, researching social issues, meeting with stakeholders and experts, and developing a student-led Action Project to address a social issue in their school or community.

We are proud to showcase the YHOP Action Projects from the 2021-2022 school year here on our website. We hope the actions of these impressive students inspire you to take action on a social issue you care about in your own community.
