Fundraising Campaign: A Week at the McCord Museum Program
Support A Week at the McCord Museum Program to finance its sixth edition and become an agent of change in your community. Children are counting on your support!
This educational program is offered free of charge to Montreal elementary school children. Created in collaboration with elementary school teachers and A Montreal School for All, the program aims to encourage schoolchildren to strive for academic success through a unique, educational and interactive approach to history and learning.
For one week, a class of 20 children is invited to pursue their school curriculum at the Museum and discover the collections as well as the work of our curators. Through stimulating and immersive educational workshops adapted to their needs, students learn while exploring an environment most of them have never seen before.
By the end of the program, the students have developed social connections that foster self-esteem. They are more open to others and our community and better prepared for their role as future citizens.
AN EDUCATIONAL AND CREATIVE PROGRAM TO ENCOURAGE SCHOOL PERSEVERANCE
To date, more than 350 students have had the opportunity to participate in A Week at the McCord Museum. We will offer the program to seven classes or 175 children during the 2019-2020 school year.
