Gift of History Program

The Gift of History is an educational program designed to ensure that each third-grade student in Orange County has the chance to receive a free book about the county they call home. It is our goal to educate local students about the cities they live in, the parks they play at, the streets they travel on and the dynamic leaders that shape their communities. By encouraging students to engage in local history, we hope to inspire community members who are civically minded and genuinely curious about their surroundings.

As part of the program, students are invited to attend an assembly where they receive their book and are treated to an hour-long program, which illustrates that history is alive and all around them.
