Welcome to Journey Through Our Heritage
Journey Through our Heritage
JTOH is one of the nation’s most innovative and unique multi-cultural educational programs sponsored by Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU Denver) Department of Chicano/Chicana Studies and Department of African/African American Studies. The Journey partners MSU Denver students with local high school students and engages them in a yearlong program that enhances current public school curriculum in the areas of African/African American, Native American, Chicana/o, Mexicana/o, Mexican-American and Latina/o studies. The grand finale of the yearlong endeavor is an academic “knowledge bowl” between participating high school teams.
The Journey also participates in numerous community events and works with the Mauricio Saravia School of the Arts year round.
