The National History Club was founded in 2002 by The Concord Review Inc. and currently has over 15,000 members from Chapters in 44 states.
The study of history builds the critical skills students need to become responsible citizens and effective leaders. Researching and discovering new information, as well as reading, synthesizing, and communicating that information effectively: these are the skills that make someone successful in business, civic life, and even science.
The National History Club Inc. (NHC) inspires students and teachers to start History Club chapters at high schools, middle schools, and within other student and community programs. Members of local History Club chapters participate in local and national programs, and create their own projects and activities. The NHC also provides chapters with resources and services that will help them increase the activity and impact of their history club. To date, 475 History Club chapters at high schools and middle schools in 44 states have joined the NHC, and there are over 14,000 student members. Schools are free to decide whether their chapter will be a regular History Club or a History Honor Society.
