Our community is always at the heart of Kidzu, especially during these uncertain times. As a community support, the museum has, since its inception, engaged in meaningful partnerships with other nonprofits, social service agencies and organizations with like-minded missions of serving children and families. Our Kidzu@Home Initiative is no exception. Here are some valuable resources from our partners.
Kidzu in the Community
We recognize and value the diversity and richness of our community, the uniqueness and variability of individual learning styles and family circumstances, and the need to continue to serve all children and families, despite their access to the internet or other resources. As soon as museums and schools closed, we began to work together with our local school district, social service agencies, and other nonprofits offering hunger relief and nutritional resources to families in need. Below are printable and bi-lingual versions of some of our virtual resources that have gone home with weekly meals across our county. Over a thousand children currently have weekly access through this program to Kidzu@Home content, and we are now working to deepen our impact and broaden our reach. Please share these resources widely and help us continue our mission of feeding minds, bodies, and imaginations.
