Dickerson Center Jefferson Monticello African American Museum Dallas Youth Ambassador Celebration

We are pleased to report that our Fall/Winter Youth Ambassador program at AAM / Jefferson Monticello exhibition was a huge success.

The service program focused on docent training for high school students. Fifteen young people applied and completed the 20-week program of training and service. They served over 200 hours at the museum in Fair Park. At the completion of the project, they were celebrated for their service held at the museum, with Dickerson Center board, museum staff, and parents in attendance.
