Stewards VISTA: Lyndon B Johnson National Historical Park
 
 
 
Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park believes youth can obtain inspiration by connecting with history and nature. The goal of this project is to empower youth from the Texas Hill Country, including Austin and San Antonio areas by engaging them through hands-on, innovative, education opportunities. AmeriCorps VISTA will work with Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park staff, partner groups and youth mentoring programs to engage underserved youth and minorities. For example, AmeriCorps VISTA will work throughout the year with creating a strategic plan to expand access to the park’s education programs and executing programming in metro and diverse communities throughout the Texas Hill Country. This will include program presentations (in-person and virtual) throughout the school year. Programming will be inspired by the park’s resources, including President Johnson’s civil rights and environmental legacy. Join Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park and its partners on their efforts to inspire the youth through outdoor education programs inspired by the landscape of the Texas Hill Country and its history. Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park was established when the enabling legislation adopted by Congress was signed into law on December 2, 1969. The purpose of Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park is to protect the historic structures and Texas Hill Country landscapes linked to the ancestry, life, and legacy of President Johnson and provide opportunities for visitors to compellingly experience these places that shaped the personality, character, and political philosophy of Lyndon Johnson throughout his life and that served as the setting for a remote White House during his presidency.
