2013–2014 Colorado Preserve America Youth Summits
Since 2007, fifteen Colorado Preserve America Youth Summits have engaged over 500 Colorado students, grades 7–12, and teachers in hands-on, interactive historic preservation activities to cultivate appreciation and knowledge of historic places and preservation practice.
The outcome-focused experiences lay a foundation for a new generation of stewards of both historic places and Colorado’s history, while providing a unique opportunity to stimulate community action and heritage efforts through enthusiasm, energy and ideas generated by Youth Summit participants. SHF has awarded grants to the program since 2008 and is proud to fund the next six Youth Summits in 2013 and 2014, themed “Preserving Places That Matter,” with planned trips to Mesa Verde, Routt County, Pueblo, Bent’s Fort National Historic site, and Washington, DC, among others.
