Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $296,168)
Old Fort Niagara Association's 'Building Citizenship Skills through Living History' program purpose is to create an interest in the region's history and in improved academic performance among at-risk youth in the Niagara Region, thus reducing rates of truancy and anti-social behavior. The project will serve two targeted audiences: youth between the ages of 10-18 in urban areas of Niagara and Erie Counties (New York) and on nearby Native American reservations. Over a three year period, Old Fort Niagara National Historic Landmark will work with school districts and local social service agencies to identify, recruit, and transport 2,000 at-risk youth to the historic site for a series of hands-on educational programs designed to engage the interest and enthusiasm of the target audience. Youth completing the hands-on program may return free of charge to share their learning experience with their family. The performance measures and the progress of the program will be measured by pre-and post-testing, the number of students returning with the family group, and by tracking academic performance, disciplinary occurrences, and truancy rates of students completing the program.
