Education program featured on DNAInfo.com

LW's award-winning youth education program, Keeping the Past for the Future, was highlighted on DNAInfo.com, a neighborhood-centric new site, this morning.

Keeping the Past for the Future (KPF) was first launched in 1999 as a way for educating UWS school children about the architecture and history of their neighborhood. This academic year alone, the program has reached 866 elementary school students ... and there are still more sessions to come!  That number is up from 523, the number of students KPF worked with by this same time last year.  That's tremendous growth we're extremely proud of!

To find out more about KPF and whether or not we're active in your child's school--or if you're an educator interested in partnering with LW!--contact LW's Director of Education, Debi Germann at debigermann@landmarkwest.org.
