Young Heroes Outreach Begins Action Phase

NLM’s year-long Young Heroes Outreach Program, which takes the Museum’s lessons on civic leadership directly into schools, is now entering the phase when the students choose a social issue that matters to them and plan Action Steps to address that issue. Students in the seventeen schools NLM currently serves have been brainstorming and researching issues for the past several weeks. Their breadth of knowledge and commitment is truly impressive. The students have been considering  a wide range of topics from bullying to gerrymandering. The following seven schools have made their decisions. A formal presentation of each school’s social issue will take place at our annual Young Heroes Impact Celebration on June 2 at Girard College. Watch for event information on this website.

“Every time we’ve expanded, it’s taken off,” said president Christopher Taylor, who last stretched out the Clay Studio’s current space at 139 N. Second St. in 2007. “We built it for 1,100 students. Last year, we had 4,600 students. We’re bursting at the seams.”

    'Bursting at the seams,' Clay Studio plans move from Old City to Kensington
