Cincinnati Museum Center Youth Program Visits the Victory Corps
The Victory Corps is The National WWII Museum’s dedicated Saturday volunteer program for middle and high school students from across the greater New Orleans region. Members of the Victory Corps interact with Museum guests at artifact-encounter stations dispersed throughout the campus, providing an up-close and ‘hands-on’ experience to Saturday visitors. Two Saturdays ago the Victory Corps itself was visited by the Youth Program of the Cincinnati Museum Center from Cincinnati, Ohio who were visiting New Orleans on their annual summer trip. Both the Cincinnati Youth Program and the Victory Corps are ‘hands-on’ at heart with the goal of both heightening the quality of a Museum visit as well as getting young people excited about history and service. The two programs swapped stories, ideas and strategies as well discussed various regional slang terms and varieties of local potato chips before posing for this picture above.
