4-H Peer Teacher Program Trains Teens to be Historical Interpreters

Applications are now being accepted for this summer's 4-H Peer Teacher Program. This program, in partnership with the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation, allows teens that love history to receive training to become a historical interpreter at either the Jamestown Settlement or American Revolution Museum at Yorktown. Teens ages 13-16 that are residents of York County, Poquoson, James City County, and Gloucester County are eligible to participate. Teens must submit an application and complete an in-person interview. Selected teens will attend two days of orientation and five days of training in June. Upon completion of the training sessions and successful mastery of the position, youth may be asked to continue volunteering for the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation as a costumed interpreter. Applications are due March 15th. For more information and application materials visit: www.yorkcounty.gov/vce or call your local Virginia Cooperative Extension Office at 757-564-2170 (James City County residents), 757-890-4940 (York County/Poquoson residents), or 804-693-2602 (Gloucester County residents).
