Engaging youth in meaningful, inspiring programs is a priority of the National Park Service and Weir Farm National Historic Site. Youth Programs are designed to connect youth and young adults with their local national park. Our goal is to expose youth and young adults to employment and educational opportunities and to develop the next generation of conservation and preservation leaders. Currently, the park works with a variety of partners to provide opportunities for youth. Through these partnerships, hundreds of local and underserved minority youth are reached each year.
