Youth Programs Director




We strive to give members of the community an opportunity to build an understanding of our historic, political, cultural, and ethnic heritage while developing leadership, responsibility, and self-esteem.

The American Heritage Tour is a week-long trip for 8th Graders. Students and Chaperones explore historical sites throughout New York, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C., Virginia, and Boston. Travel is made stress free by a seamless itinerary and prearranged transportation and lodging. 

Join us for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

Trips are open enrollment and first-come first-serve, any student and chaperone can register for any week they would like. Trips will follow the recommendations of the CDC and take AYCC and school policies into consideration to keep participants as safe and healthy as possible. 

The American Heritage Tour travels across seven States to over 20 major historical sites. While we navigate the ever-changing landscape of health safety and protocols in all of those different places, please know that we are doing out best to balance the continuation of our traditional historical trips with the safety of our participants, the communities we serve, and the communities we visit. We are thankful for everyone’s continued patience and understanding.
