Since 2009, our “Give Me History!” Title I Program has served over 47,000 elementary and middle school students and their teachers in Richmond metro area public schools by providing a free educational program at Historic St. John’s Church.

Title I is a federal designation given to schools in which over 50% of students qualify for free lunch. Our “Give Me History!” Title I Program provides Standards of Learning-based lessons that give these students an educational boost.

We provide this experience at no cost to schools, students, teachers or parents. The program includes the following:

  • An SOL-based orientation by a costumed interpreter

  • A reenactment of the Second Virginia Convention by professional actors in period costumes

  • Free educational materials and lesson plans available for download prior to each field trip

  • Free transportation to and from Historic St. John’s Church – up to a 60 mile round trip and 3 hours drive time maximum.
