The Benzonia Public Library will partner with the Benzie Area Historical Society and Museum and Benzie County Area Schools to create a teen internship program focusing on oral histories relating to veterans, families, agriculture, and artisanship. Local mentors and teen interns will be trained in video and oral history techniques and create videos for sharing online, at the local movie theater, and at the Historical Society. Program participants will collaborate with community members to capture their own memories. The project provides opportunities for high schoolers to engage in knowledge-centered internships and connect with local history.
