History is Now is an after-school guide training program at Historic Cherry Hill for high school students in the city of Albany.

Through this program, students will investigate how history affects our lives, through a local lens.
Gain skills in public speaking, historical thinking, and interpretation, applicable for college, work, and life.
Meet local professionals in the fields of history, academia, government, and other public advocacy groups, and hear how they overcame obstacles in their own lives.
Participants will receive up to 65 hours of community service credits. Students who complete the program will be eligible for summer employment as guides at Historic Cherry Hill, July-August 2022.

Program Dates:
4:00-6:00pm, Tuesdays or Thursdays, Nov. 2021-June 2022

Who can apply:
Students in 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grade (ages 14-18 by spring of 2022) who live in the City of Albany.

No work experience is necessary, and applicants do not need to have a certain grade point average or level of academic achievement to apply; applicants need only complete the application and commit to completing the program. Students under the age of 18 will need signed permission from a parent or guardian to participate.

Because there are only 12 available slots, preference will be given to those who live in the South End, where the museum is located.

All participants will need to (1) show proof of vaccination to participate in the program and (2) wear face masks at all times while indoors. Proof of vaccination may include a CDC issued card or the NYS Excelsior Pass.
