Year 2 of YHH --Placing Students on a Research Trajectory

Youth Historians in Harlem (YHH) recently concluded its second year of existence, substantially building upon its pilot pilot year in 2012-2013.

Specifically, students in the program focused more on digital history and using technology as well as the program capstone--research presentation at the end of the year.
