The John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum Foundation has developed a Youth Ambassadorship Committee (YAC). The YAC is a group of 11th and 12th grade students who care about history and its preservation. Members serve as ambassadors at special Museum functions, programs and events and assist in community, civic and school activities that support the Museum’s mission.

Joining this group has many advantages including learning about the life, and legacy of President John F. Kennedy and the times of the 1960’s. Members will interact with Museum staff and special guests. They will meet new friends who also enjoy history and learning. Being on the Youth advisory Committee will look great on a college application and may fulfill many schools service learning requirement for graduation.

The Youth Advisory Committee members are invited by their teacher to attend a two and a half hour program 12pm-2:30pm at the Museum Friday, April 10, 2015. This program will be limited to the first 30 students who register through their respective school. The program will include a tour of the JFK Hyannis Museum, Museum workshops, meeting with community leaders and a luncheon. Students will be invited to apply for an internship position after the program. Students will be volunteering their time, creativity and having fun learning about history, some of which took place here in Cape Cod.

One faculty member per school is invited to join the students. After the April 10th program teachers are invited to apply for the John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum’s Teacher Advisory Committee (TAC). The TAC is a group of educators who will advise the Museum’s Education coordinator in best practices for K-12 program development. The TAC will be valued for its recommendations and insight. Members serve as ambassadors at special Museum functions, programs and events and assist in community, civic and school activities that support the Museum’s mission.
