A Glimpse Into Great Basin Young Chautauqua

By Staff of Nevada Humanities

Do you want to know about Nevada Humanities Great Basin Young Chautauqua (GBYC) program? Don’t let us tell you. Our 2018 Young Chautauqua scholars share with you what they love about this program and why it’s so important. Take a look at this short GYBC Video.


Founded by Nevada Humanities in 1993, Great Basin Young Chautauqua is a nationally recognized and award-winning youth program in which young scholars research and portray historical figures. Through monologues and question-and-answer sessions, young scholars – in and out of character – engage their audience in lively discussions and provide insight into historical study. The free GBYC program is a valuable way to increase a young person's understanding of, and engagement with, the humanities.

If your student is ages 8-18, with a love of history, and a flourish for performance, contact Nevada Humanities to sign up and for all details about this year’s GBYC season.
