The Humanities Virtual Summer Academy is designed to engage students as they investigate their city and how it has changed through The Yonkers History Project, a study of Yonkers and their own lives. The academy’s teachers and students will take a projectbased learning approach; including investigating what life was like during Yonkers’ past and what it is like living in the city today.
