Children learning history can’t wait.

Many historians cite an early educational experience as the reason for their interest in history.

The Youth Education Fund is dedicated to enhancing history education for all students, teachers, and community youth groups.


The Youth Education Fund supports teacher training and professional development at the VHS.  This fund supports such student programs as fieldtrips and HistoryConnects, our interactive programs streamed directly into classrooms across the state and nation.  This fund supports such family programs as “Stories at the Museum” and “August Afternoons.”  This fund also supports curriculum tools—teaching guides and history boxes of touchable artifacts.

Your contribution to the Youth Education Fund will help make all of this possible.
