4-H Peer Teacher Program accepting applications!
The 4-H Peer Teacher Program at the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation allows students to learn about history and interpretation, by working on site in the outdoor living history areas and assisting visitors with hands-on activities. Teens ages 13-16 that are residents of York County, Poquoson, James City County, and Gloucester County are eligible to participate in this program. Eligible teens must turn in an application and complete an in-person interview. Selected youth will attend two days of orientation, and will then be assigned to one of five interpretive sites (based on their preferences) for training. Sites include:
- At the Jamestown Settlement: Powhatan Indian Village, Ships, and James Fort
- At the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown: Military Encampment and 1780s Farm
The application deadline is April 3, 2020. Visit https://york.ext.vt.edu/ to print out an application or call Krista Gustafson at 804-693-2602 for more information.
