This report highlights six NEH-funded projects designed to support youth and their families, specifically urban and at-risk youth. These programs demonstrate the diversity of the agency’s work and the many strategies for engaging young people. Through their focus on humanities education, collaboration, and community building, the programs benefit young people across the country. These are just a few examples of how NEH funding fuels innovation, increases communication, and strengthens communities. Some of the programs mentioned in this report, such as Together/Unidos, engage smaller groups of teens and young adults in local activities while others, like National History Day, engage thousands of children and teenagers through nationwide initiatives.
