FALL 2021 YOUTH PROGRAMS 

Archaeology 101 (Ages 10-15)

Find out what it's like to be a real-life Indiana Jones! Archaeologists work all over the world, and in our own backyards, to learn about people in the past. How did people used to live? What did they eat? Wear? These are just some of the questions archaeologists seek to answer! In this course, we will explore the field of archaeology and learn what it is like to study a past civilization. We will discuss the work of archaeologists on the ancient Mediterranean, North America, and Africa. This course will be taught virtually, with all class materials being provided digitally. Each class will begin with a brief reflection of the previous class topic before moving into the day's presentation and activity. The class will conclude with time for discussion and questions.

Verizon Innovative Learning, Verizon’s education initiative, is a key part of Citizen Verizon, the company’s responsible business plan for economic, environmental and social advancement. The initiative ensures equitable access to education in under resourced communities across the nation. In support of under-represented populations in STEM fields, Verizon Innovative Learning in partnership with NACCE offers a year-round program that works with middle-school aged young men of color, and rural young women through over 45 NACCE member colleges across the country to teach next-gen technology skills and entrepreneurship. For this program, each student is offered an immersive STEM experience during a three-week summer camp followed by sessions offered once a month throughout the year. Participants are additionally paired with a mentor for the duration of the program, into the next academic year. Students also receive career exposure opportunities led by Verizon employee volunteers.
