Discover Washington: Youth Heritage Project
(YHP) is an annual 4-day (overnight) interactive field school that engages high school students and teachers by connecting them to historic, cultural, and natural resources. YHP is designed to introduce historic preservation to a younger generation - future leaders that will work to save the places that matter. Through grant funding, we are pleased to be able to offer YHP free of cost to all accepted applicants.
