About The John g. riley center / museum

The mission of the John Gilmore Riley Center/Museum (JGRCM) is to document, preserve and illuminate African American history and culture and its blended inter-relationship with the shared human history of other people groups through the promotion of the historic Riley House as a community resource for tourism and economic development. JGRCM’s Youth Cultural & Computer Literacy Academic Program (YCCLAP) was established in 2002 to develop a climate of collaborative learning through cultural exposure. The program engages K-12 students in structured activities using historical and cultural heritage themes as the focus.
We believe that the components offered through YCCLAP should not be constrained within the walls of the historic Riley House. Rather, we extend our experience of success with previous cultural / literacy programs to reach more students. Information technology is used to ignite enthusiasm in the student’s learning process through the production of art, literature, games, and many other creative forms that provide participants with a sense of accomplishment. YCCLAP provides hands-on opportunities for students to be culturally exposed while learning and improving their reading, writing, team-building and oratorical skills.
