School Seminars

Our Student Seminars combine event historians and veterans who participated in those events with students and teachers from across Virginia. They allow students to gain accurate knowledge, discuss events, and engage in small-group conversations to further explore what they are learning in the classroom. The post-program surveys indicate their unified favorite part of the event is meeting the veterans who were there and hearing their stories, whether about Vietnam, World War II or other conflicts.

These Seminars are free and offered to public and private schools in the spring and fall. Schools can receive grant money to help cover the cost of sending their pupils and teachers to the Memorial.
