BRICK Kits are a collection of mytown's most engaging learning activities and methods. The BRICK Kits were developed to help schools and youth groups better integrate an exploration of personal and neighborhood history into their existing programs. BRICK Kits contain interactive learning activities that help students gain a clear understanding of themselves, their families, neighbors and their surrounding communities.
BRICK Kits introduce four explorations: you and your family, your neighborhood, getting the story, and sharing the story. Each BRICK Kit activity, called an “Energizer," lasts about one hour and is designed to be interactive and youth focused.

mytown provides trainings for educators and youth workers to integrate BRICK Kits into a classroom or youth group. mytown also provides an advanced training series for those interested in leading their classroom/youth group to create local historical projects such as a slideshow or a walking tour.
