We partner with dozens of community and cultural organizations each year to reach kids and families across our region and to help promote shared values. Through cultural awareness and engagement across lines of difference, we will empower the next generation with the skills to be more compassionate and collaborative problem-solvers. Let’s explore ways to work together.

BLACK AND BROWN COALITION
KID Museum is a proud member of the Black and Brown Coalition, working together to advocate on behalf of Montgomery County’s most vulnerable students. Established in 2019, the Coalition continues to call upon county leaders, including Montgomery County Public Schools and county government, to commit to taking specific and measurable actions to better serve Black, Brown, and low-income students.
KID Museum is partnering with Montgomery County to reach those children most affected by pandemic-related learning loss via in-person Educational Equity and Enrichment Hubs. Through these equity hubs, located in high-needs schools, KID Museum provides creative, virtual enrichment programs for kindergarten through fifth grade students. Equity Hubs are the result of a collaboration between The Children’s Opportunity Fund, the Black and Brown Coalition, Montgomery County Council, MCPS, and private funders.
Our six-year partnership with Identity, a community organization that serves Latinx youth and families, continues during the pandemic with virtual after-school enrichment programs for elementary and middle school students. Weekly sessions, which began in early December and will continue through spring, include designing MakeCode arcades, building circuits, cardboard fabrication, and maker games — using high and low-tech materials sent to each student from KID Museum.
