Events and programs are in partnership with Made By Us, a national coalition of more than 130 history museums, sites, archives, and youth-focused civic education organizations dedicated to engaging, empowering and educating younger generations with a primary focus on high school students, Generation Z (ages 18-30), and millennials.

As part of the Made By Us annual Civic Season kickoff, programs begin June 12 at the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown with additional programs planned on June 18 during Juneteenth at Jamestown Settlement and July 4 during Liberty Celebration at the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown.
