Episode 8 "The North Star Journey" YAP! Meets the Director of the National Park Service

New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park


One of the highlights of "The North Star Journey" was an afternoon meeting with National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis where they talked about the power of communicating through hip-hop and connecting with new audiences. Jarvis asked YAP! if they felt that this type of communication was beneficial to the National Park Service. "Yes!" was the universal reply. Director Jarvis applauded their work and encouraged YAP! to keep on creating and taking park messages into the 21st century.
